After graduating from UCSB in 2003 with a BA in Film Studies and a minor in Art History, Dan began working under Elliott Jobe as a visual effects artist. This afforded Dan the opportunity to acquire a very diverse skill set in the post production world. Whether it was building 3D cities for Hotwire.com, creating armies for the film Alexander, or generating live graphics for the ESPYS, Dan quickly proved his versatility in the field of visual effects.

Dan has spent the last 11 years working closely with Elliott managing an award winning team of artists that continue to push the visual boundaries in film, broadcast, print, web, and videogames. He has worked on everything from making Justin Timberlake look like Mickey Mouse to bringing entire worlds to life for the Bravo network.
