start in industry and CAREER PATH
After graduating from the Gnomon School of VFX, I started my career in Blizzard Entertainment's film department. I began working on matte-painted environments for projects such as Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. I continued my work at Blizzard as a Matte Painting Lead for Diablo III, World of Warcraft: Mist of Pandaria and Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm.
While constantly seeking new challenges and techniques, I decided to transfer my career to real time environments for games. Currently I'm working at Infinity Ward as a Senior Environment Artist, working on such games as Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Coming full circle, I've returned to Gnomon School of VFX as an online instructor, bringing my unique perspective to environment creation, drawing from my experience in both pre-rendered and in-game environments.
