I have a background and Bachelor's Degree of Science in Computer Animation, with a specialty in Digital Compositing.

A few of these films include:
Avengers: End Game
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
I have worked internationally at many feature film visual effects studios, moving around the globe to do digital compositing and being paid to do so.
During this time, I have worked on numerous hero shots on feature films, and have been involved in look development and creating compositing tools for various projects. I have experience in all areas of compositing through my years of work.
Given my deep experience in the industry, I believe if you take my courses you will have something worthwhile to gain out of it. Thank you.
