3D Modeler and Game Artist

Summary

I graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Illinois and obtained my Bachelor of Fine Arts in 3D modeling and animation in 2009. My 3D work is usually started with pen and paper, or sketched in Photoshop, modeled with 3D Studio Max and Zbrush and is primarily focused in modeling and texturing. I am also very skilled in web/graphic design and 2D/3D animation, as well as traditional and figurative arts including sculpture and painting. I sketch often and build off of these concept drawings and designs until I have a complete thought rendered in the best medium for that individual piece. I have a deep understanding of marketing, especially in conjunction with design. I am also well practiced in music, sound effects, recording, and audio engineering and production. My love for multimedia has brought me to independent game development using C# and Unityscript in Unity3D, where my existing passion for interactive media creation has increased ten-fold and my classical studies are still paying off greatly.

My love for art has caused me to educate myself since a young age and has continued ceaselessly even as it carried me across seas to seek further education. I have a keen eye turned towards technological advancements at all times and find them to be very exciting.

I work well with others, and enjoy creating with a team. While I have been instructed for years on the subject of design and production, much of my inspiration comes from my natural talent in diverse mediums and my eye for detail that simultaneously maintains perspective of the big picture. I know that I will be a great addition to your team, because of my ability to learn and accomplish new tasks accurately and at a rapid rate.
