I’m a lighter; I don’t really consider myself an artist, despite having studied art. I’ve always wanted to get into the entertainment industry, especially the games industry. I originally wanted to be a programmer but that didn’t work out. After a brief stint as an Army Reserve, I went to Arizona, made some huge mistakes and failures ended up studying Japanese of all things. I then realized that I wanted to refocus so I move to L.A. and now I’m currently attending Cal State Northridge for my B.A.. I first started off in 3D actually using 3Ds max 9 and did some particle tutorials with Deconstructing the elements by Peter Draper. I then moved on to modeling but was unfocused due to the fact that I wanted to get into Maya; I then got into lighting after noticing how lighting can create great shots. I plan to continue to study lighting by doing some stuff in cinematography/photography. I interned at a small visual effects studio in Culver City and am looking forward to attaining a better internship. In the end I would like to be a Lighter / Compositor.
