     I'm a entertainment developer with a passion for creativity and originality. All my life I have been gaming- from Mega Man X to Borderlands- and my drive to explore new worlds has never wavered. In my free time, I also like to learn new skills, whether it's programming, rigging, texturing, and more. I enjoy night life, going to bars and clubs as well as playing tabletop RPG's with friends. I'm always interested in new technology and have been keeping a close eye on the development of the VR and AR market.

     I attended Brookdale Community College to learn the basics of 3D modeling, rigging, and animation. I took my education further and transferred to Savannah College of Art & Design, where I developed a passion for systems, technical, and game design. I absolutely love designing games and their gameplay systems, as well as doing game art as a hobby.

     I have worked with multiple teams and truly enjoy collaborating with my peers. I have garnered an understanding of the full pipeline of games, and put this knowledge to good use in my work.

My Technical Skills Include:

Autodesk Maya - Modeling, Rigging, UV Mapping, & Animation.

Substance Painter and Adobe Photoshop - Texturing

Unreal Engine 4 - Scripting w/blueprint, Particle Effects w/Cascade, AI behavior trees, Lighting, Sequencer, & Animation. Adobe After Effects - Video Editing

Microsoft Office - Documentation and Presentations


My Professional Skills Include:

AGILE Development Cycle - I have been a scrum master and attended a daily scrum for 20 weeks.

Source Control - I have worked with PerForce and used proper check-Out/check-In and documentation procedures.

Quality Assurance - I have worked with bug tracking software, ran test plans, identified and resolved issues, and more.

Problem Solving - I am efficient during time-limited situations and am able to find the best or alternative solutions.

Work Ethic - I always arrive early or on time, complete my work, and behave in a calm and collected manner.

Leadership - I have been leader in multiple scenarios, and often take to heart criticism so I can improve this skill further.

Communication - I am very proactive to speak my mind as well as listen to what others have to say.

Organization - I try to follow a proper workflow: Clear naming conventions, clean documentation, and organized folders.
