I am an interdisciplinary 3D production artist with a focus on game environment and prop modeling, lighting, texturing, material creation, and prep in UE4 and Unity. I also have many years of production experience in 3D and compositing for film commercials and episodic television. I like learning new programs, it's a lot like playing a new video game, you just have to learn the buttons. I've been told I'm knowledgeable with a good attitude, even during late-night hours. I also enjoy keeping current with industry trends, games, scripts, rigs, and plug-ins. I'm a big believer in "Sharing the Knowledge" in the workplace and helping fellow artists where I can.
Thank you for reading, and I hope we get to work together soon.
