I am a 3D/2D artist who utilizes creativity and teamwork in order to design and execute captivating art and animations. I am looking for a full time position where I can work either within a creative team or independently. I have worked on several projects using 2D and 3D software, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, and Maya. I use my time efficiently, and strive to submit work ahead of schedule.
