director / animator / editor

I am a proud Father to two young girls. Surfer. Mount Everest climber. Creative problem solver. Into pretty fun stuff all around. I hope you enjoy browsing my work, and I know you'll enjoy working together should we climb that hill. 


My career began as an editor and motion designer at the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, and Smithsonian Channel. In 2009, I launched my platform TAQUET FILM, where I've maintained longstanding relationships with clients such as Disney, Marvel, Coca-Cola, Warner Brothers, and Home Depot. I welcome projects both as an independent contractor and also through the production house of Taquet Films.


Awards for films include “Best in Show” at Los Angeles Cinema Festival, New Media Film Festival, CineCina Film Festival, Chinese American Film Festival, and BOTU Film Festival. Screened at Sundance Film Festival. Twice won the National Award for “Best Motion Graphics” at the National 48-Hour Film Festival. I've recently brought home 3 Addy awards in 2019. 



I've loved lecturing and taking part in forums for filmmaking and animation all across the country. 


Most recently I've finished editing and providing over 100 VFX shots for a feature film premiering on Showtime
