About

Art has been my career as well as my main passion throughout my entire life. Ocean sports and environmental causes are also interests held dear to my heart.

In 1989, I graduated from Art Center College of Design with a B.F.A. in Illustration. I served as Professor of Art and head of the award-winning 3D Modeling & Animation Certificate Program at Santa Ana College from 2001 to 2019. Prior to teaching, I worked in print advertising, the video game industry, and later in my own art production company, Waterman Animation.

Additional noteworthy accomplishments:

  • Authored “3D Artist’s Guide to Real-World Applications”
  • Two-time runner-up for the honorable Distinguished Faculty Award
  • Innumerable students at Santa Ana College’s 3D Modeling & Animation Certificate Program have won distinguished awards regionally and state-wide, and have successfully transitioned into the professional realm working as successful production artists for advertising, VFX, animation and video game companies.
