Hey there! Thanks for stopping by!
I'm a Chicago based freelance 2D and 3D generalist. I pride myself on having knowledge in many fields, from photography, on set filming, to 3D and 2D visual effects and graphics. I'm constantly striving to learn more, find new avenues of creative exploration, and am always pushing myself to become a better artist.
My strengths include inorganic modeling, animation, texturing, lighting, and rendering. I am primarily interested in the visual effects workflow, easing transitions from 3D artists to 2D compositors, and making sure those down the pipeline get everything they need and more. I'm mainly a 3D artist, but I am constantly striving to become a better compositor. I am also very interested in the visual effects pipeline, specifically towards becoming a VFX Supervisor. I love being on set, and making sure that things are shot correctly for the post production team.
My programs include Maya, Vray render engine, Mudbox, Modo, After Effects, Nuke, Photoshop, and I am in the process of learning Cinema 4D.
I am currently looking for freelance or full time employment opportunities.
Outside of work you can find me jive dancing, attending myriad car and motorcycle shows, cooking up a storm in my kitchen, figure skating, and my favorite old lady tendency, knitting and crocheting. I'm just living my life as it comes, and exploring the wonderful city I live in with the most amazing people by my side.
