    I am a 3D Artist that specializes in creating high quality photo-realistic images and animations. My primarily emphasis focuses on creating marketing/branding and pre-visualization designs for consumer products, but I am able to create designs that are applicable for any purpose or industry. Overall, I consider myself a 3D Generalist with skills in nearly all areas of the production process and I am able to produce designs for any medium including web, print, video, and real-time graphics (games). I have been hired by large, house-hold-name companies such as Purina and Nestle as well as smaller companies looking to grow. The most successful of these smaller start-up companies, Kairos, hired me to create images and videos for their mechanical smart watch designs. Thanks in part to my designs, their crowd-funding campaign raised nearly 1.5 million dollars in pre-order revenue. I have professional skills in 3D modeling, texturing/UV mapping, material setup/shading, animating, lighting, rendering (V-Ray), and compositing. In addition to my production skills, I also place a great deal of importance on communication. I pride myself in providing top notch communication to all of my clients. No matter how large or small a project may be, my goal is to deliver the highest quality output. I am a perfectionist when it comes to designing anything, and am constantly striving to better myself with every subsequent project. I am driven by creating graphics that attract, immerse, and innovate.

    Web Developer, 3D Generalist and Motion Graphic Artist

    United States - Last active: 12/05/2012 - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 11

    I have been freelancing web development, 3d modeling, and motion graphics for over five years. For the past four years I have worked for a product development company creating web tools, animations and 3D models for concept testing. My freelance and current employment have always required an intense amount of creative development, ideation, communication and time management. While freelancing I keep an open dialog with my clients; updating them on project progress, new ideas and improvements if they pop up mid project, and making sure they get what they want and expect at every step. In the past I have built websites from design ideation to launch, created storyboards and motion graphic pieces for tv intros and presentations and have modeled and animated characters. I wear several hats to get projects completed. From modeling, texturing, animating and rendering a logo or character to designing and building a website from start to finish, while also finding the client hosting and securing a domain name. I am extremely ambitions and self motivated. Before owning my own company I was hired as a 3D generalist for a product development company. I successfully convinced the company owner to create a motion graphics position specifically for me. Offering motion graphic pieces increased client interest in the company, as did several web tools I built to improve data mining and streamline internal processes. I was the only person in the company who did web development, 3d modeling and motion graphics. For the four years I was employed at this company part of my animation duties included: creating detailed storyboards based on feedback from several people, animating while receiving critiques and creating all visual elements on short deadlines. Being the only person who modeled, my position entailed: modeling, texturing, staging, lighting and rendering all objects to a high degree of realism. Being the only person who did web development my duties included: coming up with solutions to problems that can be solved through web tools, designing and coding web tools, making sure web programs have no bugs, training coworkers on how to use web tools and updating the company website when necessary. The bulk of my work is created with After Effects and Maya, but I use Flash, Photoshop, and Illustrator almost daily. Web languages I know are HTML, HTML5, XML, CSS, CSS3, Jquery, PHP, MySQL, Actionscript 2/3 and have in-depth knowledge of Wordpress You may be thinking, "What can you do for me?" I have a large skill set, but if I need to learn something new, I will. I work quickly and efficiently, while trying to find the best solution for your web and visual needs. All my projects are completed with the highest technical and design skills. I graduated with a BFA in Animation and Game Design, but I have an AAS in Visual Arts so I know about layout, color and design. Lastly, I meet my deadlines and complete what I start.
