United States,  Hollywood Gnomon School of Visual Effects,  Entertainment Design and Digital Production,  September 13, 2015
Hello all! I am currently a student at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects in my last few terms. My main focus is modeling and texturing environments for games, but I can jump around the pipeline as well. This WIP reel is a collection of pieces that I have completed during my stay here at Gnomon. I am in the process of finishing projects that will be used in my final reel.
Thanks for the view!
