John began his professional career as a cinematographer after graduating from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts. While still enjoying success in cinematography, John discovered computer animation. Self-taught, he quickly learned how to adapt his love of the visual world to that of the digital. By 1992, his work caught the attention of Amblin Entertainment, as they were putting into place what would become Amblin Imaging, Steven Spielberg’s own digital effects facility. John’s unique understanding of the process of filmmaking and visual effects made him an ideal candidate to manage the division. From there, John’s career has wound a path through the entertainment industry, from visual effects supervision, writing and directing, to script development and executive producing.
John splits his time between helping visual effects studios grow and develop, and his true passion, filmmaking.
