Time for a New VFX Adventure

I’ve spent nearly the past two years working with an amazing team at Hammer and Chisel. It’s been a great opportunity and I am thankful for the time I spent there.

I have worked as a senior VFX artist as well as technical artist. I am also currently employed teaching FX at a community college imparting industry knowledge on the young and impressionable. I’m a 2004 graduate of the Art Institute of Seattle. I have several shipped titles including Fates Forever, Borderlands 2 and DLC content, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Duke Nukem Forever and Pirates of the Burning Sea.

My Specializations Include

– Unreal 3.X, Unreal 4.X, UDK
– Particles (Cascade)
– Vertex and Pixel Shaders / Materials
– Maya Fluids
– Unity
– Unity Particles (Shuriken)
– Post Processing Effects
– Parametric / Node Based Editors
– Photoshop
– Mobile Game Development for Android / iOS using above engines
– Some C#/scripting
– Some Hard Surface Modeling
– zBrush, Maya, Modo, Blender

– Learning Houdini VFX Tools
– Learning Allegorithmic Substance Designer
– Always willing and ready to learn MORE!

I am a quick learner and have quickly adjusted to any changes in software used by the teams I had the pleasure of working with. I am excited for new opportunities.

I am currently living just outside of Dallas, TX, but I am willing to relocate for the right position.



Welcome to my VFX blog!

Hi there!

I’ve finally joined the future and started my own blog. As time moves on, I’ll be adding all sorts of personal art work, as well as images and videos of games that I’ve had the immense pleasure of working on. I’ve been insanely lucky to have spent the last few years at Gearbox Software where I was a Senior FX artist. I had the pleasure of working on one of the most popular titles of 2012; Borderlands 2. It was a lot of fun, and a lot of work but ultimately the rewards were worth it. I can look at the store shelf with pride knowing that I put my mark on that game with a lot of other really talented folks.

Have you played it yet? If not, head over to Amazon¬†and grab yourself a copy! I can’t wait to see you in the Borderlands!
