A while back The College of Saint Rose asked if they could print a story about me in their magazine. It tells of my journey as an artist beginning with the amazing art training I received at The College of Saint Rose (Albany, N.Y.) leading up to the wickedly cool PDI DreamWorks Animation (Redwood City, CA). It's been a long journey, and its all summed up right here in this article. Click on the Summer 2009 cover with Jimmy Fallon. Thank you Kris Herrick, Karene Faul, Sarah Harrington and the rest of the amazing faculty at St. Rose for pushing me through the beginning of it all. Special thanks to Jane GottLieb for writing this article. Enjoy!

It's been a while since I posted anything.... been busy. :-) All I can say is that the film is turning out beautifully so far. It will showcase SO much mind blowing awesomeness that it will make your eyes bleed. Chris Sanders has done something extraordinary with the characters and story... I cannot wait until this can be shared with the public upon the movie's release. Stay tuned...

Update: August 22, 2008. Animation on the film is in the can! Working with directors Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath, our HOCA, my fellow animator compadres and the rest of the Mad 2 team has been such a rewarding experience. The Story and Animation have both superceded the first Madagascar, in my opinion. It's funnier and even more absurd! The final renders are stunning to watch. I can't imagine how amazing it will look on IMAX theaters. Now the countdown begins upon it's release. WOO HOO! For those of you who haven't seen the website, head on over and check it out!: Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. The film releases in November. GO AND SEE IT! :-)
