About

I'm sort of a generalist but I specialize in modeling and texturing. I graduated Fullsail Real World Education at the end of June '06 with an AS in Computer Animation. I'm currently searching for work and am well versed in Maya, Photoshop, ZBrush, and Shake.

I lean strongly toward game art. It's been a passion of mine since I was very young and I suppose I tended to gravitate toward it because of my love for video games. I had toyed somewhat successfully with 3D in my early teens, but never had enough direction to really focus my skill on my own. A few years out of highschool I decided to take it up again in a more serious manner by going to school. College was an absolutely wonderful experience and I learned a lot. There's still a lot to learn though in this ever evolving industry of ours. At this point I'm working on what will be my third demo reel. Coming along great so far. Biggest change will be the inclusion of actual hi resolution models as previously I've focused a lot on the low res side of things. Having ZBrush in my toolbelt really helps for this as it's one of the few things I really think we should have been taught at Fullsail but it was neglected for the most part (though I hear it's in the curriculum now).
