I am a graduating student in Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Visual Effects and a minor in Scientific Illustration. The video is a compilation/demo reel of some of my better pieces from my time here at SCAD. I want to eventually take my skills in CG art and apply them in scientific visualization and animal reconstruction.
