I come from a background in Fine Arts with 10 years experience in Visual Effects for Advertising, Movies, TV, Interactive and Experiential.  I started out as a CG artist developing photo real cars for world wide ad campaigns.  From there moving into compositing and developing my eye for the photo real, rising to become a VFX Supervisor and then Creative Director.  

When at MindOverEye, I combined my Executive Producer and VFX Supervisor skills to run the VFX department.  I developed MindOverEye from a Tier 2 facility to consistently creating world class work for Movies, TV, Advertising, Interactive and Experiential projects.  In addition to developing the methodology of the projects and ensuring quality, I also maintained the VFX department profitability by working with creatives to achieve their vision while staying within the operational budgets.  Bidding every VFX project and staying on top of software/hardware needs allowed me to have complete oversight in ensuring the VFX department's longevity. 

Sean is a very experienced CG artist, CG Sup and Technical Director. He has such a good creative eye and his experience runs so deep, that he is not only the ultimate fixer but also a great mentor, manager and coach for all artists around him. He works well with clients and has the possibility to excel both as a Creative Director as well as a client-facing executive.
