Summary

I've been fortunate to make a living in the entertainment industry in various capacities for the past 28 years. Most of those have been as a storyboard artist, having worked on hundreds of commercials as well as a dozen or so films. In the late 90's I was employed for several years as a visual effects artist, working on feature films for such studios as Rhythm and Hues.

Then in the early 2000's I directed and produced the documentary "Frazetta-Painting with Fire" which covers the life story of the most famous fantasy artist to ever live, Frank Frazetta. It's hard to look at the portfolios of all of these incredibly talented artists here on ArtStation and not see the influence Frazetta has had upon them. He touched thousands upon thousands of lives and continues to do so. I'll be forever grateful for having spent such valuable time with him whilst filming the documentary.
