Environment Texture Artist @ Naughty Dog
Santa Monica, United States

Summary

I am an Environment Texture Artist @ Naughty Dog LLC where I recently shipped The Last of Us: Part 2. Previous to Naughty Dog, I spent a short time with Insomniac Games as an intern where I worked on Marvel's Spider-man.

I also teach online with CGMA where I have created my own environment art course to help prospective individuals learn the pipeline of creating environments for games. In addition I have created multiple online tutorials through schools like Gnomon and also on my own. I find being able to help people either through teaching or tutorials to further understand how environments are made to be extremely rewarding and a way for me to impact people to be able to follow their passions. It helps me with continuing to push my communication skills and at the same time learn a lot from the creative ideas and techniques that newer artists bring to this field.
