    I’m a former Walt Disney animator, later animation director for an fully-animated feature film in Barcelona for Filmax Films, and recently animation director at Square Enix/Eidos games in Montréal.

    At Eidos I was part of the initial core direction team, responsible for creation of the game concept, storyline, and high-level objectives. I also directed two concept animation sequences, including storyboard and previz, direction of motion capture performances, and supervision of two contract studios, Digital Dimension, and Visual Works in Tokyo, to complete shot layout and finished animation.

    I also have a background in fine arts, having studied realist drawing and painting at The Florence Academy of Art, in Florence, Italy. This training has developed my eye for optimal use of value and color and complements my years of film experience.

    In sum, I am a seasoned animation artist, working in many capacities in studios around the world. I dedicate myself 110% to every project and inspire those around me to also do their best work.
