Meet the Team

Jim Lammers

Jim Lammers

President & CEO

Jim received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering at the University of Missouri in 1987. After specializing in Aerospace as a sensor array test engineer at Rockwell International (Los Angeles), Jim found his interests drawn back to his love for art and animation. As technology made new ways of working available, Jim founded Trinity Animation in 1994 as a service that provided illustrations and animations of all kinds to local businesses, typically for technical or marketing purposes. Over the years, the company has grown to provide hyper realistic imagery for a variety of uses to clients worldwide. Jim enjoys finding new and creative applications for 3D animation and visualization for Trinity's artists to learn about and for Trinity to offer to the world. Jim has co-written 4 best-selling books on 3D animation for Pearson Publishing, including the seminal "Maya For Beginners" series. He enjoys guitars and cars in his spare time.
