3D GENERALIST | VISUALIZATION | RIGGING | SIMULATIONS
Hello! So a little bit about me, I've been a 3D Generalist since 2015. While freelancing, I've had to animate characters and cameras, modeling and layout, and particles. I usually work in Maya as my primary toolkit, while also being flexible enough on shows to work in Unity, Unreal, Houdini, and multiple render engines like Arnold, VRay and Redshift. I've also been able to adapt and learn proprietary softwares and pipelines quickly when needed, like virtual production and on set filming for VFX.
On my off time, I enjoy hiking and photography.
