Summary

Think of me like an engineer, who solves your art problems.

I create holistic art solutions for products, from initial concept through the entire pipeline to a functioning asset in engine. This includes; look development, shader creation, in-engine workflow tools, to client-side engineering, all with an eye towards maximizing the needs of the product and the strengths of the dev studio.
