I have over 4 years of experience as a Visual Development Artist and a year of experience as Product Manager with a demonstrated history of developing successful designs in the entertainment industry. Experienced in Adobe Photoshop, ToonBoom Harmony, Maya, ZBrush, and Adobe After Effects and Adobe Illustrator. I started in 2008 at Boom as an Associate Visual Development Artist, then worked in Visual Development at Tilted Shed Studios, Sutikki, and Cryptozoic Entertainment. At Sutikki I help concept the Character Design for multiple shows, one in particular Kuroba is nominated for Best Web/App Series Original for the Kidscreen Awards 2019. At Cryptozoic Entertainment I worked on content for our partner properties; Attack on Titan, Peanuts, DC Comics, Rick & Morty, Trover Saves the Universe, Cryptkins, and Steven Universe. I host the monthly the Tilted Shed Orange County Game Jam at the ESports Arena in Santa Ana where we host an average of 60 competitors make a game in 12 hours! I also help manage an indie game booth at event like Dream Hack, Siege, and GDC where I show the indie games I help develop for Tilted Shed Studios. I have extensive experience working both in 2D and 3D art. I am very comfortable on a Cintiq or with traditional materials. I am occustomed and know the in’s and out’s of production schedules and efficient pipelines. I have extensive experience as a visual development and some experience as a Production Management. I am easily adaptable and can master many art styles. I love to work and I bring that everyday to whatever studio I am a part of. Thank you for your consideration!
