Jamboree 2015 - Meet the Speaker: Walt Sturrock

Walt is an artist, photographer, and instructor for 30+ years. He has illustrated 6 children's books for publishers Unicorn Publishing Inc, the National Humane Society, and Walt Disney Publishing. He has taught painting, graphic design, and computer graphics in several schools and companies in New Jersey.

Walt moved to California in 1995 when he started with Disney Animation on the movie The Hunchback of Notre Dame. He worked there for 14 years as an instructor, Manager of Computer Training, and Technical Director. He currently works as a webmaster, instructor, and technical illustrator for a leading Aerospace company.

He began his genealogy work as an offshoot to his love of history, photo restoration, and family. In an effort to make sense of the thousands of photos that his family was giving him to scan and restore, he created a comprehensive family tree and database that he could reference when identifying the 100,000+ photos in his collection. He is now "addicted" to genealogy research and has become the family historian.
