Hi :)

Art, Creation, Making and Learning New Things have always been my passions. I also love new Technologies, Adapting to new Environments and Systems and Problem Solving.  

Let's Create Something Amazing Together!

Role Models to me have always been those with a myriad of skillsets. My Father taught me early in life that having several tools in your toolbox and learning to use them well means you can get the job done. Throughout my Professional career I have gained Proficiencies in:

  • Traditional Art: Illustration, Conceptual Design, Sculpting Techniques, Painting Techniques and Photography.
  • Industrial Design: Solidworks, Rhino, Keyshot, Fusion 360, SketchUp, MasterCAM. CNC Systems setup for: Milling, Kongsberg Cutting Tables, Vinyl Plotters, Water-jet cutters,  Plasma Cutters and Laser Engravers. UV Flatbed Printing, Large Format Printing, Vacuum Forming, 3D Scanning and 3D Printing.
  • Freelance & Consultation: Available
  • Digital Art & Graphic design: Adobe: Photoshop, Illustrator, Premier Pro and Substance Painter. ZBrush, Keyshot and 3D Printing.
  • Advanced Model Making: Physical models from scratch through to fine detail finish painting. Utilizing traditional and 3D printed building techniques. Prototypes, Studio Miniatures, Architectural, Props, etc.
  • For Fun: I enjoy Designing Toys that Don't Exist, D&D, MTG and other Tabletop Games, Video Games, Puppetry and Foam Fabrication, Personal 3D Printing, Cosplay, Illustration and experimental art projects.  

I am also currently expanding my 3D palette learning Unreal Engine, Blender and Houdini. I have had experience in several Apps such as Maya, Cinema 4D, 3DS Max, Modo, AutoCAD, FreeForm, Revit, Catia and the rest of the Adobe library not mentioned above. However this has been mostly for aspects of a pipeline or working through format issues with clients. So I will not call myself proficient in any of these just yet. However I am a quick learner, a self-starter and can adapt quickly into new software.
