About

Steamroller exists to breathe life into stories, characters, and experiences in visual, physical, and virtual spaces. Each project that comes our way, be it a game, a film, or a theme park ride, exists in its own universe. It is our job to bring this multiverse to life. Our animators build believable characters and whole worlds in a multitude of universes, while our developers manipulate the rules of perception to transport you to a new definition of reality. We relish the opportunity to bring our clients’ universes to life while also developing our own stories.

Summary
I have been animating professionally as both character animator
and lead, in commercials, feature films and now games. I am also
proficient in modeling and rigging. In my spare time, I am working on
a MOBA style video game in the Unreal Engine. I have also taught a
Maya Springboard class at AnimationMentor.com.
Specialties: Over 20 years experience of reading body language
thru interviews and interrogation from my past career of being a New
York City Police Detective. This has been an unbelievable asset
while creating new character animations.
