Me, I'm best known as the author of "the book" on VFX compositing in Adobe After Effects. I'm also founder of the company that has brought Cinefex to the iPad, and has played a role in films that you've seen, training that may have helped you, and productions for famous companies from around the San Francisco bay area that are known around the world.
Watch this site for resources that will help you, and bug me if I'm not doing a good enough job teaching you, entertaining you, or generally making your life more enjoyable - seriously. It took me a long time to realize this site isn't about me - if it's worth existing at all, it's about you. And whether or not you're also a Christiansen - please say hello!
