I have always had a passion for design/illustration/character development. As a kid, you could always find me with a sketch pad and pencil. My love of creating and producing was taken to new levels during my studies of 3D design and animation while at Pratt Institute. Here, I was able to develop my skills as I was introduced to new software and techniques such as Maya, Z brush and the Adobe Programs. My passion for animation comes to life in my work, with attention to detail, lighting, scenery etc. I am a curious learner who is eager to continue developing my skills and perfecting my techniques in all areas of 3D design. I look forward to the opportunity to grow and learn with like minded creative professionals.
