My Story

I’m a self-taught 3D Artist living here in sunny Los Angeles, CA.  With over 9 years of experience I’ve had an opportunity to work on a wide range of commercial projects, episodic TV series and films.

I’m familiar with various aspects of CG, however, my expertise has primarily been in the area of effects.  Most of the work I’ve done has been in creating Fire, Smoke, Explosions, Dust, Debris, Liquids, Particle effects, Cloth elements, etc.  Lately, I’ve been teaching myself Python and Houdini. 

As you scroll down you’ll find some of the projects I’ve been involved with.  I’m based out of Los Angeles, but am equipped to take on work remotely and willing to travel if you’re located elsewhere.  Please have a look around.  If you have any up and coming projects you might need help with don’t hesitate to get in touch.
