Demo Reel

For Over four years now, I've helped studios bring their ideas into the third dimension. Most recently I was Modeler for LAIKA Studios and created countless 3D assets for developing feature films.

I realize the life of a model doesn't begin and end with me. Instead, I take it upon myself to understand the needs of riggers and texture artists and do what I can to make their jobs easier. Time has also taught me to channel my fine-arts background into every project with a haste that could only come from commercial experience.

I pride myself on being versatile and am often asked to trade mouse for stylus to create matte paintings, storyboards, and textures. On occasion I've scripted for web, created vector art in Flash, and even edited.

I hope you'll take the time to visit my gallery and forward your input. Currently I am freelancing as a Generalist in the greater Portland area while seeking full-time employment as Modeler. I am open to relocation, eager to share additional materials, and looking forward to talking with you.
