Experience

  • Senior World Artist at High Moon Studios
    Carlsbad, United States of America
    June 2017 - Present

    All things environment art in the Destiny universe.

  • Senior Environment Artist at Sony Santa Monica Studio
    Los Angeles, United States of America
    June 2016 - June 2017 (1 year)

    I was tasked with modeling, UV/texturing, creating materials, and placing assets in levels. Some of my original work was based off of concept art and some from individual reference gather. I also did set dressing using previously existing assets. Most of my work consisted of taking grey box levels with no art in them and bringing them to final quality keeping a fine balance between industry-leading visuals and console budgets.

  • Lead Environment Artist at n-SPACE
    Orlando, United States of America
    July 2006 - January 2016 (9 years 6 months)

    I was responsible for managing my team while working closely with the art director and designers. Meeting with other leads, giving feedback on outsourced assets, doing anything possible to ensure our deadlines and quality bars were met. When not doing my Lead duties you could find me, modeling, texturing, lighting, doing minor scripting and animating of props and levels.

  • Intern Asset Artist at AWE Games
    Weston, United States of America
    January 2006 - April 2006 (3 months)

    I was responsible for modeling and texturing numerous environment objects to be used in real time and renders.
