Technical Environment Artist

Summary

I started creating game levels and environments in Unreal over a decade ago. Now, with the benefit of my many years of practical, hands-on experience, I help a diverse range of clients realize their creative visions.

I have used my extensive knowledge of Unreal and 3D content creation workflows to help
produce realtime 3D environments and visuals for live television broadcast, virtual reality, open-world videogames, AAA game trailers, cinematics and interactive museum installations.

I've worked in a senior capacity as a Level Designer, Environment Artist, Lighting Artist and Technical Artist.

I'm interested in studying the physical world and learning how to create a visual approximation of it in realtime. I enjoy replicating patterns and structures found in nature, using procedural tools such as Houdini, and creating environments and landscapes with a high degree of realism.
