Taylor D. Spiegelberg, B.F.A.

Senior Forensic Animator


Mr. Spiegelberg earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 3D Graphics and Animation from the University of Colorado Denver.

In southeast Wisconsin born and raised,
on a playground is where he spent most of his days,
chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
and all shooting some b-ball outside of the school,
when a couple of guys who were up to no good
started making trouble in his neighborhood,
he got in one little fight and his mom got scared
and said we’re moving to Colorado.
