As a digital artist and Visual Effects Supervisor, John was instrumental in bringing Hollywood computer graphics techniques to the docu-drama world with a string of successful specials for CineNOVA during his 5 year tenure. John’s interest in all things military led to the creation of the on-going TANK OVERHAUL series, which he produced and co-wrote.

On his 20th birthday he got to drive a big 30 ton bulldozer around and tear up some open ground. That day changed his life forever. He funneled this love into 3D graphics where he became a 3D modeler / articulator where he could build these things himself. He went on to create vTorque, a 3D animation brokerage, which he ran for a few years (and where John and he met). From there he moved onto several film studios helping create films like The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, The Chronicles of Narnia and others. Finally he settled in the San Francisco bay area to work for Pixar Animation Studios and enjoys pouring his extra time into Advanced Military Research.

Jeff has worked in the computer graphics industry since his initial exposure to it in the mid-1990s. Since that time his professional travels have taken him through the development of custom 2D and 3D visualization systems for the commercial and military flight simulation worlds, Department of Defense contracts, SBIR development (in all of its phases), game development, and rapid prototypes of all types and scopes.  His love of the Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" is what initially drove his passion for all things military.
