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.
Currently I am a Creative Lead at Riot Games doing my part to help my talented team push our project forward.
Coming full circle, I've returned to Gnomon School of VFX as an instructor, bringing my unique perspective to environment creation, drawing from my experience in both pre-rendered and in-game environments.
