animator by 1991 where he performed Emmy award winning animation for the California Raisins, Michael Jackson's "Moonwalker",
Domino's pizza Noid, Claymation Christmas, Teenage Ninja turtles, Burger King, Nissan, Chrysler, Three musketeers, Samsung,
and many more. Since then he has worked for Laika (formerly Vinton's) as a lead maquette sculptor for the movies Coraline,
Harold and Kumar, and the television commercials, Samsung, Planter's peanut, light life, Premier Protein, Honda, and others
