Visual Storyteller for Creative Development
I am a production designer, visdev artist, cinematic storyteller, and painter in the entertainment industry, creating concept art and products for animated features, TV, live action films, indie productions, AR | VR content, immersive experiences, themed parks, interactive games, and publishing. I believe great products and memorable stories are fueled by the passion of their creators.
Prior, I was the production designer on the award-winning, Oscar-qualifying animated short La Noria by Carlos Baena of Pixar, which premiered at Siggraph Vancouver 2018 and is currently winning over 75 awards and screened at over 100 film festivals worldwide. www.lanoriafilm.com
