biography

I create all things 3D... Who I Am: Decades ago I joined the military learning how to weld and fabricate for the Sub Base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Afterward, I entered a career working as an all-around fabricator using multiple mediums: metal, wood, plastic, glass, and even concrete. In 2003 I began 3D development which grew into a full-time freelance position and led to many notable and interesting accomplishments. So if you don’t see me hiking on a trail in the wilderness, you can bet I’m creating something special for any given client, working on collaborative design project online, or building some type of video game. What I Do: My passion and profession is designing with 3D software, leveraging many professional approaches in design. Using CAD software I create engineered parts, assemblies and drawings. Using rendering software I create photo- & non-realistic images for marketing and pleasure. Using CC software I create 3D models and extend their use in rendering and animation productions. Using the Unreal Engine I combine everything 3D into fully interactive visualizations, apps, and video games for use anywhere & everywhere. Thanks for checking me out!
