  As an artist with a background as a 3D generalist, my skills set is not limited to character creation and 3d modeling, but spans across the visual effects industry. If you are involved in a 3D project of any kind and feel my services could assist you, please feel free to contact me in any of the ways possible that are available on this website.

I am an aspiring character and creature artist, focusing on digital character sculpting, texturing, and character setup. With that as my focus I also make sure I am well versed in shader setup, lighting, and rendering, along with animation due to my degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design. All of these skills together give me a great grasp of the industry and more importantly the tools needed to create 3D in all of its aspects.
