My obsession for animation started long before I began my training and career. I'm fascinated about how animation brings characters to life ​and influences feelings and thoughts. I have a strong understanding of cinematography and traditional animation principles. From bipeds to quadrupeds to flying creatures, I understand the physics and mechanics of different masses. I'm a firm believer that no matter what role you take on, you must always keep your hands in the creative process and continue producing content.

I oversee and guide the animation team, set the goals, schedule while ensuring that all projects are delivered on time. I help establish the animation style, write documentations and set the quality bar. I act as a bridge between the animation and the creative teams to ensure the animators have a clear grasp on what needs to be accomplished, and to identify dependencies that could affect the schedule. I have experience with both, hand keyed and mocap animation.

Robinson: The journey
When the Esmeralda crash-lands on Tyson III, a boy is left stranded. He must rely on his wits – and one of the ship’s AI units to survive.
I was responsible for the overall vision of the product which includes the visual style, story, animation, and cinematic.
