Designer – Artist – 3D Junkie.
I find myself dabbling in almost anything that allows me to be creative. While my training and education are rooted in Architecture and Interior Design I made it a point to learn the tools and techniques of many disciplines just to capture the images and ideas in my head. I have this unbridled thirst for knowledge which sometimes feels like a curse, but with the guidance of some great friends and colleagues I have managed to learn a great deal and my creative outlets have expanded well beyond what I initially intended; Oil Painting, Clay Sculpting, Graphic Arts, Typography, Photography, Visual Effects, Web design just to name a few.
Truth be told; Design and Architecture place second to my love for 3D. Whether its Environments, Architectural, Character creation, or even just Concept Design. I cant get enough. Self taught it’s been my passion. Mastering Render engines like Vray; learning the science behind photons and Light, Fluid simulation, and learning how to operate physical cameras in a 3D Space. It helps that I’m also somewhat of a science nerd, I seem to be always trying to find the Science in Art, and the Art in science.
I guess I’m pretty lucky. Some people never find that passion, the love of something that drives them to better themselves, and for me its opened a great many doors. Helping some of the worlds biggest names, designing and visualizing some of the coolest and greatest projects. From the buildings and hotels you walk into when you visit Las Vegas, the homes that surround our community, and many projects that will never see the light of day; but still inspire..
For me; This is what it means to be an Artist. To Create and Inspire.
