Character Artist | 3D Modeler
I am a 3D Character Artist with 10 Years of experience in the Games Industry, having modeled, textured, rigged & weighted
Characters in a variety of styles. My expertise has taken me outside of my realm and into a variety of roles, from World &
Environment Art to Blend-Shapes & Animation, allowing me to adapt to many forms of 3D development while still maintaining
a specialty. Due to this, I am able to offer a wide range of abilities when it comes to providing 3D content.

PaperCraft I have spent the past 5 years learning & perfecting this technique which involves creating characters or objects in 3D and
processing them through a software that allows me to convert them into images that are then printed, cut out, folded & glued together
to replicate their virtual counterpart. It’s my goal in life to create a character line and take it commercial.
Photography I am an avid photographer with a deep appreciation in Architecture and an amateur background in portrait photography
