view show reel

I am a experienced Lighting Lead and Senior Lighting Artist with a wide range of artistic and technical skills in lighting, rendering and compositing. In the past 15 years I have mostly worked on animated feature and live action feature films including Peter Rabbit, The Lego Batman Movie, Hotel Transylvania 2, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, The Lego Movie, Walking with Dinosaurs, Happy Feet Two, Legend of the Guardians and Planet 51.

Being the first person to join the Lighting Supervisor on Peter Rabbit as a Lighting Lead I was able to shape the new VFX Lighting pipeline with him. The resulting standardized and automatized lighting workflow results in faster output, quicker turnarounds and consistent output for the compositing department. This allowed us to delivery over 120 shots per week with little to no over time. I also managed and lead an amazing team of artists on the show.

I had the great opportunity to be the Lighting Lead for a extremely dedicated and talented team on Animal Logic’s first VR show ‘The LEGO Batman Movie – Batmersive VR Experience’.
