About

Hi!

I am a California 3D artist raised in the Chicago area.  Since I can remember I have been obsessed with animation (whether it be in movies, games, or on the internet!)   As an adult, that love has manifested itself in my career as a 3D modeler.  When I sculpt or model I love taking a 2D concept and bringing it into the 3rd dimension while maintaining the style and charm of the original piece.  It can be a puzzle to have a character or prop cross dimensions. Luckily, I have always enjoyed puzzles.  I am currently working as a 3D modeler at Sprite Animation Studios.  I will be open for new employment opportunities this October (2018).  Feel free to contact me at the email address listed below!
