I’ve been an artist most of my life–starting with a correspondence course from Art Instruction Schools, then continuing to learn on my own. First drawing, painting,sculpture, then airbrush illustration and comics before getting my first computer and being introduced to digital art, Computer Aided Design (CAD), and animation.
I was a Designer and Creative Director at SMP Instore Marketing solutions for 15 years. I developed award winning displays for Jelly Belly Candy, Mizuno USA, Keebler, Lance, Sanford Uniball, Anheuser-Busch, Frito-Lay and Pepsico, to name a few…
I’ve been creating computer animation as Zandoria Studios™ using Animation:Master software since 1999. I am well known on the A:M forums, part of a group of expert users that Martin Hash (the creator of the software) affectionately calls the “Hash Fellows”.
In 2004 I used A:M to create visual effects for a Hollywood movie—Bryan Michael Stoller’s film “Miss Cast Away and the Island Girls”.
I’m currently working on a graphic novel about a hippopotamus barbarian, TAR of Zandoria, in search of adventure, dancing girls and fruit punch!
