Profile Biography 
I am an FX Supervisor at DNEG. My work is in the visual effects (VFX) industry for film and episodic media. This industry specializes in creating the computer-generated (CG). My area of specialization is in effects (FX) which encompasses generating physically based simulations and dynamics. In short, in FX we are the ones creating CG water, fire, smoke, destruction, magic, etc. My career started out creating FX in feature animation at DreamWorks Animation. From there I branched out into the VFX industry in live action films. This opportunity moved me from LA to Australia and Canada. In the last few years I found more interest in broadening my reach from a technical director/artist role to gaining more leadership experience. I enjoy the work in both problem solving and taking on more mentorship and leading roles.

My education is a blend of engineering and design. I have BS in Electrical Engineering and a Master in Architecture. I continued more studies in computer graphics before starting the venture in my career.
