3D Modeling and Asset Manager for in Game Cinematic

Call of Duty: Ghosts (2013)

Tracking, Modeling, Texturing, Look Dev, Lighting, and Compositing for Visual Effects in the Commercial Industry. Working in commercials has been the best boot camp for me to grow from a Jr. artist to senior level. Every day is a trial by fire. One never knows what kind of project is going to come through the door. The work is fast pace with tight deadlines, and endless clients notes. Working under such conditions has forged me into a well rounded artist. I have learned to work quickly and expanded my knowledge to reach down the entire pipeline. This enables me to anticipate the needs of an asset further down production. Combining my pipeline knowledge, my work ethic, and ability to work well with others, has really enabled me to move fast in my career.

    Worked as a graphic designer, handling Ainsworth Designs largest client “Del Taco”. Daily I created billboards, flyers, eblasts, mailing ads, and various other promo pieces that were sent all around the country. In the two years that I have worked here, I have created a niche for myself within the company. Wanting to put my film and digital arts degree to good use, I convinced my bosses to allow me to expand the company and offer up video production and motion graphics as a service. I was able to create an on-line video marketing series for our second largest client.
