I began teaching at De Anza College as a part-time Animation Instructor in Spring 2017. I became a full-time Film/Television Animation faculty member in Fall 2017.
The bulk of my professional experience has been in creating art and animation for research applications and serious games. I worked for many years as a 3D animator in the "Virtual Humans" group at USC’s Institute for Creative Technologies. Before that, I worked at USC’s Information Sciences Institute creating 3D and Flash animation, illustration, and web design for K12 online tutoring systems and games. I've also done freelance 2D and 3D animation work.
