Hey! I'm Jason. I'm a 3D character animator based in the California Bay Area. In addition to animation and film-making, I get excited about creating with new technologies. I've contributed to a variety of projects, including animated VR short films, AR apps, interactive music videos, and mobile games. Currently I'm an Animation Supervisor at Evil Eye Pictures, animating in Unreal Engine on video game trailers, with sporatic Tech Anim responsibilities as well. I originally hail from Pennsylvania, but I got my BFA in Animation at SCAD in Georgia. Luckily, my first short film I made there as a senior gained some recognition. Soon after, the folks at Encyclopedia Pictura invited me out to San Francisco to work on a music video. I've been here since! I'm very grateful to say that makes almost 10 years working in the industry with a lot of amazing people. Current interests: coding animation tools in Python, sculpting in Blender, and teaching tricks to Poppy (our French Bulldog).
