    As a 3D environment artist at Reptoid Games, it is my responsibility to take blocked out level concepts and transform them into fully realized game environments. For this position I am working on an upcoming VR title, meaning there is a heavy emphasis on game optimization. My team and I have been balancing both detailed hero props, as well as highly optimized modular kits/trim sheets to accomplish the most immersive experience possible. High fidelity 3D art, optimization, and clear communication with my team are all key components to my position at Reptoid Games.

  • Summer Shorts Game Art Instructor at Durham College
    Oshawa, Canada

    The Summer Shorts Workshop is an opportunity for teenager to get exposed to a plethora of multi-media programs held at Durham college.
