co-founder/president

Brian C Knapp started his career as an office furniture designer, first for Haworth and later for Steelcase. In 2000, he left Steelcase to start Externa CGI.

Since its inception, Externa has developed into a premier CG animation and rendering studio. Brian, along with the team at Externa, possesses the technical expertise and unique abilities to thoroughly understand our client’s products, processes and services. This allows the entire staff to meticulously craft stories through animation, visualization and VR.

Throughout he experiences (radio DJ, comic book artist, industrial designer, educator, creative director, animator), the common thread for Brian has been storytelling.

Outside of work, Brian enjoys hiking with his dog, producing music, and spending time with his family. If any of those things can happen in the middle of the woods, that’s an added bonus!
