Gilbert (MFA, M.Ed) has long been interested in the intersecting aspects of many creative disciplines. This interest initially drew him to study animation, and he has worked extensively as an animator, illustrator, musician, and art director for clients such as The National Wildlife Federation's Ranger Rick Magazine, Disney Interactive, Nickelodeon, Sesame Street, and many others. In addition, he has illustrated several children’s books. Currently, Gilbert is exploring synesthetic modalities inherent in music and animation.
