HELLO THERE!

 

I am a senior level 3D modeler specializing in hard surfaces and environments.

Over the course of my career, I have shipped 7 AAA video game titles (including 8+ years as an environment lead) worked on several feature films, and was most recently part of the AR dev team at a live streaming company. Go to portfolio →

With 15+ years of experience in the industry, I understand the importance of working within technical budgets and time restrictions while still producing the highest possible quality of art. I have collaborated with teams of all sizes and pipeline workflows, rapidly adapting my skill set to suit the task at hand.

I am also the owner of  Visido Imaging – a 3D service provider primarily for accident reconstruction. This work involves long-range on-site 3D laser scanning, reconstruction of virtual environments, spatial analysis and legal animations.
