    I'm a 3D animator and VFX artist with 15 years of professional experience and training from Gnomon School of Visual Effects. I bring a deep understanding for both the design and technical aspects of 3D animation and VFX pipelines. I'm passionate about continuously exploring new techniques, tools, and approaches that push boundaries and bolster established workflows. I believe in leveraging the strengths of technology to find the right balance between human control and automation, but never losing sight of the human touch that makes many pieces of art so beautiful. My background in the philosophy of language provides a unique ability to communicate complex ideas in a clear and concise manner. I enjoy building a bridge between the client's vision and my expertise. This helps to ensure that the client is kept informed, and that feedback is received and incorporated in a dynamic and effective manner. I prioritize planning and efficiency to tailor the most appropriate and unique pipeline for each project. As a versatile artist, I rely on a diverse range of software to bring my creative visions to life. I utilize Maya's broad 3D capabilities, Nuke for VFX compositing, and After Effects for 2D animation, allowing me to produce a wide range of visual styles, while retaining a high degree of refinement and control. I enhance my workflows with a background in graphic design, illustration, and editing, using tools such as (but not limited to) Photoshop, Illustrator, and Resolve. Top Skill: Applying Maya, Nuke and After Effects to efficiently design and complete animation and VFX production pipelines. Tactical use of third-party tools and scripting, for efficient modeling, animation, simulations and rendering. Core Skills: Organic, hard-surface and procedural polygon models. Texture painting, UVs, shaders, lighting and rendering. Procedural and character animation. VFX Compositing, including tracking, multi-pass compositing, keying and grading. Particle, cloth, liquid and fracture simulations. Volumetric effects using the OpenVDB toolset. Scripting and tool development using MEL and Python. Rigging for characters and objects. Expert use of the procedural SOuP toolset. Graphic design for digital and print. Machine learning tools, including Resolve and Stable Diffusion. 3D Printing for art installations, prototyping, and props.
