Over 20 years ago I saw John Lasseter on TV talking about KNICK KNACK and how he studied Chuck Jones cartoons professionally & felt he had never truly worked a day in his life because he got paid to do what he loves! This sounded like the job for me!
I started animation school just as TOY STORY was released and of course Pixar became the studio to work for. 15 years and thousands of drawings later it's with great pleasure that I accepted Pixar's invitation to join their story dept.
It's been a long wait with the interview process & visa issues but I'll finally be moving to San Francisco this week to start work the beginning of October on a top secret project that I know nothing about-so don't ask!
I've tried to see as much of Europe as possible over the past year drawing along the way. I'm looking forward to exploring San Francisco and northern California as much as I can. But I feel that I'm going to be really busy on the film for the next couple years . . .
My local newspaper ran a story on me with a pic of me climbing out of a Norwegian fjord!
New promo posters have been released for the last 2 films I worked on. They will be released in 2011
