About Me

I'm a 20 year-old aspiring character and creature modeler studying modeling and texturing at Gnomon. When I was 10 years old, my parents got me an XBox 360, Halo 3, and Gears of War. When I found out about the character customization in those games, I spent more time admiring my character than playing them. My interest in characters grew with every new release, and it still does to this day. In 2009, my grandpa took me to see District 9 in theaters. I remember being absolutely blown away by the visuals, and I fell in love with the prawns and the how well they were designed. It was then that I realized I could be a part of the process of creating characters for film as well as games someday in the future. Just two and a half years ago I discovered ZBrush. I got a job at a gas station/convenience store just to earn money for it. After discovering my love for digital sculpting and modeling, I knew I had to become a character/creature artist.



I went to the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) for one year and am now at Gnomon School of Visual Effects.
