Jeff Kasunic currently works in the film industry as a digital artist, helping movie studios bring their stories to life, including the recent animated movie HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 3 at DreamWorks Animation, as well as SHREK, KUNG FU PANDA, and other major studio releases. Prior to this, he worked in London as a live-action visual effects artist for Double Negative Visual Effects, helping to deliver STAR TREK: BEYOND, HUNGER GAMES: MOCKING JAY, INSURGENT, THOR, TOTAL RECALL, MAN OF STEEL, and JOHN CARTER.
Jeff currently lives in Los Angeles, California, but in 2017 he swore his allegiance to England’s queen, proudly becoming an American/British dual citizen–all of this causing much concern to his parents who raised him in Cleveland, Ohio. Jeff has also lived in India while consuming poisonous food, roamed the Egyptian desert on the back of a camel, scuba dived with sharks in Fiji, and almost-cried at Beethoven symphonies in Europe. These international experiences affect his writing, as he believes in creating a culturally diverse cast of characters, and strives to appeal to a global audience.
And why a picture in front of a door? In 1808, Beethoven wrote his fifth symphony behind this door in Vienna, Austria. Jeff likes to stalk the ghosts of his musical heroes when he can. For fun.
