Explain your daily work day...My work day can vary a lot. Overall it's creating something cool and exciting. If I'm not creating, then I help others to produce entertaining work. I also try and play a game of soccer at lunch.
What do you do at Atomic?
I am an Animation Supervisor on 3D projects. I'll be transitioning to be Previs Sup for the next show.
How long have been at Atomic?
How did you get into animation?
Coming up this new year I will have been with Atomic for 3 years!
I fell into animation. My high school offered some basic 3D classes, which I loved. It took a couple of years playing with 3D for me to find and set my sights on animation.
What Post-Secondary School did you go to? and Why did you choose that school?
I went to the Art Institute of Vancouver in 06/07. I chose Ai because I had taken a week long course call Sweat, offered to high school students to see what life at Ai would be like. Really, I wanted a week off from school and this was a great way to also learn more about 3D. After the week ended I signed up with Ai for the Animation and Design program.
Favorite things to do in Vancouver?
By far my favorite thing about Vancouver is our mountains! Camping and summiting some of the local/near by mountains is my favorite thing to do. Our local breweries kick butt, specially Howe Sound Brewery. I also like raising a family here.
