RÉSUMÉ resume_pdf


I'm a versatile content creator with over four years of industry experience ranging from creating photorealistic AAA assets to coding ActionScript user interfaces. I come from a strong traditional art background and I've reliably displayed an ability to quickly understand and apply new technical concepts to a diverse set of projects. I maintain an active interest in all aspects of game development and look forward to making artistic or technical contributions to any new project.
