Adjunct Professor of Instructionstaaffe@colum.edu
I am currently an Adjunct Instructor in both the Animation and Game Arts Departments at Columbia college Chicago.
I am a highly accomplished modeler and animator using a wide variety of software. My experience has covered a lot of bases in the CG industry. I have done work in broadcast, children’s animated video, short film, product demos and industrials. I recently spent four months doing pre-viz work for the Warner Brothers film “Man of Steel” which was filmed here in Chicago. I also taught 3D animation classes for many years at NYU and The School of Visual Arts in New York
