Programming, Graphic Design, Video Editing, Audio Voice Overs, 3D Modeling, Photography

I am a Boise State University graduate with a Bachelors in Visual Art emphasizing on photography and graphic design. I am an incredibly quick learner when encountering anything new and I can pick things up in a reduced amount of time. I value efficiency and flexibility in my workflow and try to always consider the future in any projects I’m a part of contributing to enhanced legacy support.

Fluent in a number of programming languages including C#, Javascript, PHP, & SQL as well as ASP.net MVC and Entity Framework. Proficient in multiple design programs including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, & Premier Pro. Minor experience in Amazon AWS services and Authorize.net merchant transactions. Experience in live streaming software and services including Youtube and Twitch.tv.

My 3D workflow starts with modeling in Blender 3D with some multi-resolution sculpting if needed, UV mapping, and textures with normal maps and baked ambient occlusion. Textures are drawn up in Photoshop and sometimes brought back into Blender for live painting touch ups or fixing seams. Models are then exported into a Unity ready format.
