Hello all!

I am Richi. I was born in Jamaica and am now studying in the USA at Savannah College of Art and Design. I am most passionate about lighting but I do enjoy exploring other areas of 3D image creation. I grew up on TV shows about nature, I like things that taste good and machines that go fast.

Thanks for looking at my work. Enjoy!
