I’m Dan and I am a 3D generalist specializing in modeling and lighting. I have just graduated from New York University with a Master of Science degree in Advanced Digital Applications where I have strengthened my 3D skills and gained new knowledge in areas such as live-action VFX and compositing. I began my education at Rochester Institute of Technology, receiving my undergraduate degree in Film and Animation, where I built a solid foundation in filmmaking principles and traditional and computer animation techniques across the pipeline. I used my accumulated technical skills as well as my strong visual storytelling ability to create a short 3D animated film for my senior thesis, which was selected for the student honor’s show as well as several film festivals.
My present goal is to work in the commercial industry in a production studio setting. I feel it would be a fast-paced environment where I can quickly gain a lot of experience and polish my skills. I would also love to work in film, which has been a passion of mine for many years. In addition, I am open to looking into other fields such as medical imagery and architectural visualization, where I can also utilize the CG skills I've learned.
