I have been making 8mm movies since I was 8, greatly inspired by the works of Ray Harryhausen, Stan Winston, Rick Baker, Bob Burns and others, I was making costumes, sets, props and models for my home film productions. While in collage studying film & video production, I was hired by Lucasfilm to work at the ILM special effects unit in San Rafael, CA. Working with artists like Joe Johnston, Phil Tippett, Lorne Peterson, Bill George, and many others. Since then, I have worked on various freelance projects, ranging from TV appearances, to commercial work, live appearances and commissioned works. Current skill set includes : Plaster casting & mold-making; Resin casting; Injection Molding casting; Vac-u-forming; Miniature model building; Full-size props; Set design and construction; Custom Vehicle Fabrication; Lighting & Electronics; Costume design and creation.
