Welcome

I am a passionate 3d artist who specializes in  modeling/texturing and sculpting..

9 years ago (as of 08/24/2008) I decided to ditch my corporate job and find myself a career in the arts. My initial estimate was, "it will only take six months!". Yeah right...

My interests lie in modeling & texturing & I am proficient/have extensive knowledge in: Mari, Substance Painter,  Zbrush, Maya, 3ds Max, Mudbox, and Photoshop.

 

       Skilled modeler, comfortable with all types of assets including characters, props, and sets.

       Efficient use of UV space

       Proficient in establishing realistic shaders

       Keen eye for froms, detail and color

       Skilled in Maya,Zbush, Mari, Substance Tools and Photoshop

       Can adapt easily to new workflows

       Works well in a deadline driven environment
