Stop-Motion Animator / Internet Wizard


I grew up in Northern Ontario, spending most of my childhood watching 'Movie Magic'. Now, I live in Portland, Oregon, and work as a stop-motion animator at Laika.

 Live from the stage/my workspace

In 2010, I graduated from Sheridan College's Animation program, with a focus in stop-motion animation. I was awarded Best Character Animation in my graduating class for my short film 'The Arctic Circle'. I spent a year in Toronto, animating on the CG kids program 'Justin Time' at Guru Studio.

From 2011-2012, I was an assistant animator on the ill-fated, stop-motion animated feature 'The Shadow King', directed by Henry Selick.

Since 2013, I have been animating at Laika on the stop-motion animated features 'The Boxtrolls' and 'Kubo and the Two Strings'.

In my spare time, I make entertaining, practical-effects-heavy content for platforms such as Vine. Sometimes my short clips are quite popular, and sometimes I completely baffle the Internet.
