2013 Demo Reel:
I am a freelance FXTD currently working remotely for Sim VFX as well as Cotufa Studios . I also work as a motion graphic artist full time as well as freelance. I work inside of Adobe After Effects, Photoshop,AutoDesk Maya, and Realflow 2012. I have experience in camera tracking with The Pixel Farm’s Matchit and Boujou.
I have gained most of my VFX training underneath the tutelage of Luis Pagés. I have completed his entire FXTD training courses covering particle emissions, advanced fluids, camera tracking, nCloth simulation, nParticle simulation, rigid body simulations, MEL coding, expressions, dynamic rigs, and rendering as well as running water simulations in Realflow. We are also trained in Thinkinetic PullDownIt rigid body simulator.
I also run a small youtube channel that creates completely custom content based off of video games. We write, shoot, edit, sound mix, and score everything ourselves and then post it to our subscriber base. The videos are relatively popular and we have gained a small following.

I graduated from the University of Missouri Columbia (Mizzou) in 2011 with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with emphases in I.T. and History. While attending school I was a Teaching Assistant in an upper level After Effects course covering VFX and compositing. My hobbies include sports, blowing things up (digitally… mostly), beer tasting, and the occasional book.
