A Little Bit About Me

I am a recent Gnomon graduate and 3D artist who specializes in creating characters and creatures, but has a fondness for all types of 3D art!

My love of video games, comic strips, puzzles, and animated films & TV shows have all contributed to making 3D the perfect field for me. The craft is a blend of a puzzle, game, and art which excites me to create within it and learn more about it each day.

Throughout my studies at Gnomon I have touched several aspects of the 3D pipeline and become proficient in several industry standard programs, my most commonly used being ZBrush, Maya, Substance 3D, and Unreal Engine.
