About me

My name is Haj A Jomehri (HAJ), aka ‘Lionbrush’. I was born in Iran and raised in the Bay Area, where I now live with my wife and two kids. My background is diverse, having worked in sales and machining, but my true passion for CG animation and VFX has always been a constant. I am a lifelong learner, constantly seeking new tools, techniques, and technologies to improve my craft.

With a proven track record of delivering high-quality results, I have had the privilege of working with some of the biggest names in the industry including Apple, Marvel/Disney, TBWA\Chiat\Day, and Levi’s, to name a few. Past projects include the Absolut Greyhound campaign, the Marvel/Disney Infinity 2.0 campaign at the E3 Expo, 3D prints for EA’s Mass Effect, & the Levi’s Future Finish project. I’ve consulted with both major brands & startups to bring their ideas to life.

My talent, dedication, and passion for storytelling were recognized when I won the prestigious Stan Winston Robot Design Contest, and received a Legacy Effects 3D print of my winning design, Robobeast. This achievement kickstarted my career and inspired me to continue developing Robobeast’s story through my Zoobots NFT project, which continues to evolve as I explore the intersection of art and technology.
