Special Effects and Model Making


In the late 1970s and early 1980s I worked for various theater and special effects companies learning the ropes the old fashion way as an apprentice. This took me in the right direction as

model maker and puppeteer for make up and creating creatures for filming commercial television and B budget film. Some of my work was created for Claymation and stop motion .

Museum and science.

My career in model making took me in many directions including museum pieces for paleontology. Dinosaurs became a big part of my career in the 1990s. I worked closely with Paleontoligists like Robert Bakker and Jim Kirkland. This was a turning point for me.
