My professional background is 20 years in the animation industry, most of those years have been spent at Walt Disney Feature Animation. I trained at Disney under the guidance of Eric Larson.

My list of credits include: “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Aladdin”, “Mickey’s Christmas Carol”, “The Fox and the Hound”, “Lady and the Tramp II – Scamps Adventure”. I was also a Directing Animator on “The Brave Little Toaster”; animator on “The Chipmunk Adventure”. Below is a link to my IMDB (International Movie Data base) page info:
