I'm a 3D artist with 7+ years of experience. This experience has allowed me to run a successful studio with clients all over the country; the primary focus is on photo realistic visualization, animation, and post-production.

I've had the opportunity to work for Neoscape Inc. and Bergmeyer Associates in Boston as a 3d artist. While there I’ve worked on a number of projects from hospitality to retail spaces. One that stands out was the LL Bean in Pittsburgh PA. Aside from 3DS Max it required extensive knowledge of Photoshop, Vray, and After Effects.
The most recent client I’ve worked with is Hopster’s Brew & Boards in Newton, MA, a mid-size restaurant/brewery. The owner approached me early on in the design process with his idea and using renderings in 3DS Max I helped him finalize the design from layout to finishes. The lighting designers we’re so impressed, they used the rendering as their guide to match!
Aside from the professional work, I try to give back to the 3D community when I can. At the end of 2012 I lead a team of five in building assets for the AAUGA meeting at Neoscape. The topic I delivered was integrating game engines for real-time visualization. The discussion was a great success with a lot of interest from the audience, the key piece of the presentation being the first two floors of Boston City Hall as a real-time environment that you could walk through and interact with.

In addition, I've taught 3D Design, Game Design, Video Editing, and Graphic Design as an adjunct faculty at Boston University, Mount Ida College, and the American Career Institute. I’ve also lectured at the AAUGA meeting at Neoscape on the topic of integrating game engines with architectural visualization.
