About Van

Van has a BA in Psychology and Economics from UCLA and a MFA from USC. He completed two student films at USC that went to screen at over fifty national and international festivals such as SXSW, Anima Mundi, and SIGGRAPH Electronic Theatre. Both went on to win student "Emmys" and his thesis film "Values" won best animated short at SIGGRAPH 2001.

After graduating from USC, Van has worked as an animator, layout artist, user experience designer and creative consultant for films and games produced by Dreamworks Animation, Sony Imageworks, Digital Domain, Naught Dog, Zynga, Double Negative, The Third Floor and Blue Sky Studios. He has worked on such projects as Harry Potter, Madagascar, Thor, Shrek 2, Ice Age 3, Uncharted, Stuart Little 2, Alice in Wonderland, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Skylanders, Oz the Great and Powerful, How to Train your Dragon Pilot and John Carter.


He has given presentations or has taught at the Academy of Art, Cal Arts, CCA, Pratt Institute, USC, SCAD, De Anza College and Ringling Art and Design School. Van enjoys teaching animation and thesis development class as well as volunteering his time to such events as the "Downtown Project" and "Bring your own animation". Van hopes to complete another film or launch a mobile app in the near future.

I enjoy teaching introductory animation through more advanced film making courses.
