United States,  Winter Park Full Sail Universtity,  Computer Animation,  November 25, 2014
I grew up in several West coast states including Washington State, Colorado, and finally graduating high school in Gilbert, Arizona. Shorty after graduating I went in the Navy where I worked as an information system technician (IT). I was stationed in Italy for two years, followed by Mayport, Florida. When my four years were up, I started school at Florida State College where I earned my Associates in Art. Shortly after graduating I discovered 3d arts, and pursued my passion at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.
I enjoy all aspects of the 3d pipeline, but I am the most passionate about lighting, texturing, modeling, visual effects, and rendering.
