Co-Founder, Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc.

Having spent over twenty-five years in the film industry, the work is still as creative and involving as ever. I'm lucky to be able to work in a field that provides such a varied, moving target and keeps things challenging and rewarding! Art and technology evolve and I have ample opportunities to balance both in our day-to-day work and keep our teams motivated and our clients thrilled. Even in this age of computer effects dominating the screen, we're able to provide extensive practical, real-life approaches to on-set effects as we did with the upcoming feature film prequel, The Thing.

We've also had growing interest in our branching out to bring our characters to life in a variety of live venues; From the highly successful Greenwich Village Petshop of the artist, Banksy, to a twenty foot-tall animatronic baby for the Shanghai World Expo, to the twelve foot-tall fashion blogger, Little Marina, who helped lead to an instant sell-out of the new Mussoni fashion line at Target nationwide and the crashing of their shopping website! And we thought our monsters were dangerous!
