About Robert

I am a graduate of UCLA with both an M.F.A. in Animation from the school of Theater, Film, and Television and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering with a concentrated study in Computer Engineering from the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science.

Originally from the California Bay Area, I studied and worked in the Los Angeles area for nearly 15 years. This time included professional work in Television, Mobile gaming, MMO gaming, in addition to a year abroad working in Japan.

In television I am proud to have been a character layout artist as part of a team that provided keyframe poses and animation breakdowns for four feature films that comprised the highly anticipated revival of Matt Groening's popular FUTURAMA franchise.

Since moving into the video game industry in 2010, I have contibuted to numerous shipped mobile and browser-based games. Recently, I have been given an opporunity to take the reigns as lead animator on an exciting, unannounced project at Disney Interactive — leading a team of talented animators endeavoring to bring an exciting new game to market which will feature one of Disney's most beloved IPs.
