Some of my inspirations that have made me want to create monsters and have aspirations to become a special effects person are Robert Kurtzman, Stan Winston, and Greg Nicotero. Film Directors that have been inspirations include George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Guillermo Del Toro, and JJ Abrams.
These men have been a big influence in my life and role models growing up. Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park (1993) was ground zero that began my life long obsession to make real life dinosaurs and creatures. Spielberg will always be my number 1 role model in both the movie making and directing industry.
