About Me

I’m a senior flame artist veteran with over 15 years of experience at best-in class shops. My specialties include leading projects, high end compositing, direct client sessions, on set supervision, and finishing. My projects are consistently organized and run efficiently to maximize cost savings.

I take pride in building teams. I’ve mentored and trained Flame artists from the ground up, creating homegrown powerhouses.

Lastly, I bring a level of personality. Clients have fun in my sessions. We joke and laugh and remember why we got into this industry. The result: maximum client satisfaction and repeat business
