Skills

Screenwriting, animation, editing, and production.

Day to Day

When animating, I work primarily in After Effects and Illustrator. When writing, I mainly work in Final Draft and coffee shops.

Off the Clock

I love spending time with my family: riding bikes with the 3-year-old, throwing stuff with the 1-year-old, and watching movies on the couch with my wife. I train jiu-jitsu, cook experimental meals (still trying to perfect an Indian curry), and write screenplay(s) in my spare time.

Background

I grew up in Lubbock, Texas, where I spent most of my time researching how to enjoy the perfect Dr Pepper. I came to Austin for film school, where I focused on screenwriting and directing.
After film school, I got married and took a 9-month trip around the world with my wife. We came back to Austin and started a family: two weimaraners and two boys. All four of them are pretty wild.

Fun Fact

I have a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
