About

I am a versatile and multifaceted 3D Artist with a Red River College diploma in Digital Media Design and majoring in 3D Computer Graphics.

Throughout this program, I have had the opportunity to learn a magnitude of 3D software including Zbrush, Maya, Substance Painter, Unreal Engine, and more. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of Digital Media Design, I also have extensive knowledge of relevant skills such as Graphic Design, Typography, Concept Art, Programming, Visual Effects, and Photography.

My range of 3D experience includes:
• Hard Surface Modelling
• 3D Sculpting
• Texturing (Substance Painter and Photoshop)
• Lighting & Rendering
• Videogame Design & Programming
• Animation and Posing
• Material & Texture Creation

My experience has also included character modelling, asset, and environment creation, both stylized and realistic. I have had the unique opportunity of working remotely through my second year of College where I was able to work independently while still maintaining the same high standard of work that I was able to achieve in person. In my first year, I was able to work closely with teams and have a keen understanding of a dynamic workflow, which I was also able to execute remotely during my work placement with Project Whitecard.

I am both eager and enthusiastic to contribute and grow alongside the 3D world, and look forward to my future career opportunities.
