I am a 23 year old 3D artist based in Seattle, WA. I have always had a passion for video games, but it wasn’t until high school that I realized that I could make video games as a career. I have immersed myself in 3D ever since. After graduation I was hired by Microsoft as a 3D environment artist and am still working there today. When I am not sitting behind a computer, I love to spend time camping, skiing, and biking around Redmond.
