With more than 15 years of experience in the animation/television industry, I have been enthusiastically and passionately taking the creative visions of directors, lead animators, art directors, and designers and breathing life into them in 3D. As a 3D Artist and Animation Professional, I like to be a one-stop shop for your 3D needs, taking care of modeling, texturing, and animation while giving you the peace of mind that your project is being handled by a pro. Your project is as important to me as it is to you. Yes, the majority of my experience has been in children's television for both Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, but my love for 3D goes way beyond that. I thoroughly enjoy photo-realistic modeling and texturing, game animation and modeling, and even using my skills for children's books. Feel free to drop me a line any time if you ever have any questions, ideas, or suggestions. I would love to hear from you!WWW
