HELLO THERE!

 

I am a senior level 3D modeler with 15+ years of experience, based in Vancouver, BC.

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

I have collaborated with teams of all sizes and pipeline workflows, and my strength lies in rapidly adapting my skill set to suit the task at hand. I am dedicated to producing the highest possible quality of art while working within technical budgets and time restrictions.

My alter ego is the owner of Visido Imaging – a 3D  laser scanning service provider specializing in the virtual reconstruction of environments, vehicles and structures for technical analysis and visualization.

In my free time, I enjoy squash, biking and beach volleyball.
