Ferdi-MonstersUniversity-18May2013I was born and raised in South Africa, but now live in California with my wonderful wife Ronél and our three sons, Nicolas, Conrad and Dewald.

I’m fortunate enough to work at the best animation studio in the world – Pixar. My latest film credit is for technical development on Brave, and this photograph of me is from the wrap party near Calistoga.

I graduated in 1996 from The Ohio State University with a PhD in Computer Graphics. After graduation, we returned to South Africa where I worked at the Satellite Applications Centre for 5.5 years before coming back to the USA to live my dream – creating animated feature films for a living!
