About

I am a 3D modeler/sculptor, trained in both traditional and digital mediums, and have received my BFA and MFA within the media of sculpture. My expertise is in digital organic sculpture, specifically anatomical/figurative, but I have thorough experience in hard surface modeling. I also have experience in integrating digital 3D work into virtual/augmented reality (VR/AR) applications and it's physical possibilities through 3D printing. My skills include:

Digital:
-Sculpting/Modeling (Zbrush and Maya)
-UV mapping (Maya)
-Texturing and 3D painting (Substance Painter)
-Game engine integration (Unity and Unreal)
-Rigging (Maya)
-Animation (Maya)
-Virtual and Augmented Reality (Unity)

Physical:
-FDM, SLA and DLP 3D printing
-3D print post processing
-Clay sculpting
-Mold making
-Casting
-Foundry processes (wax/metal chasing, patina, lost wax casting)
