Director Statement

I am a 3D modeler that specializes in modeling environments and props. When modeling, I often get inspired by abandoned environments such as Six Flags, New Orleans, and gaming weapons such as "Mortal Kombat" weapons. As an artist, I develop my art from my experiences when I went to “Arcade Monsters.” I am constantly inspired to create weapons from the different games I play, such as “Tekken" and “Mortal Kombat.” Modeling my thesis project and being a part of the short film “Atrophy,” I have created various atmospheres that have taught me skills that I use now on a daily such as: a strong understanding of light, value, composition, color, staging, good sense of scale and spatial awareness, etc. I use these skills daily, whether in school, at work, or for my own art.
