Hi! I'm a 3D artist with a passion for design and storytelling.

I’m currently working as a lighting artist at Grid.
Working on getting my name out there in the animation industry, I actually love doing pretty much anything creative. My passion is to capture moods and emotions in anything that can be considered art. And though my medium of choice happens to be digital 3D, I also love writing, photography, clay sculpting, and designing my own tattoos. I don't really consider myself a programmer, but I like coding tools if it helps me out one way or another.

Skills

    • Environment modeling & setdress
    • Maya
    • Blender
    • Mudbox
    • 3ds Max

    I have a good eye for composition, and I’m able to translate modelsheets and a storyboard or animatic to a well-balanced 3D shot.

    • Lighting & compositing
    • Arnold
    • Cycles
    • Mental Ray
    • Fusion

    Being able to recreate moods and emotions through 3D art is the key reason why I'm very passionate about perfecting my lighting and comp skills as much as I can, both on an artistic and technical level.

    • Character modeling & grooming
    • Maya + Yeti
    • Blender
    • ZBrush
    • 3ds Max

    I’m learning fast in terms of topology and how to make a character model show its personality. In terms of grooming, I have some experience with Yeti for Maya, as well as a good understanding of the hair system inside Blender.

    • Coding
    • Python
    • JavaScript
    • HTML
    • CSS
    • PHP

    I love automating repetitive tasks, and developing tools to aid artistic processes. I’m familiar with Python APIs in Maya, Blender, and Fusion, and I can pick up new ones quickly.

    • Substance Painter
    • Final Cut Pro
