3d animation


“Andy is absolutely one of the best 3D animators in Minneapolis, MN, and in the business, globally. He has a stellar work ethic, a gift for creative problem-solving, and an incredible knowledge of the technical side of the industry. You would be lucky to have this man on your team.”
Kirstin Streiff, Designer/Art Director at Carmichael Lynch

3D Animator, VFX artist, and more

I am an award winning 3D/VFX generalist and film maker with over 12 years of experience. The realm of 3D/2D and Visual FX is the best way for me to relay a message, portray an idea for a client, or simply let the mind run wild. I appreciate seeing ideas prosper and grow by thinking outside of the box. I find much enthusiasm in what I do and look forward to sharing with the industry and world at large..

Today, I consider myself an artist of many realms and have worn several hats – from artist to producer to creative director. If my work sparks your interest or you just have a general question, please feel free to get in touch.
