Technical Artist at LAI Games
Singapore, Singapore

I am a Canadian 3D artist for the video game industry currently located in Singapore.

I have always been passionate about art and video games. In recent years, I have been working on designer and creating art pipelines for Unity projects and integrating tools for our artists like Blender, Substance Suite, Photoshop and Affinity Designer. I also developed a few tools in Blender using python to speed up our content creation.

Through my education, this passion has evolved into a desire to be part of the challenging and creative process of making games. I am seeking to join the ranks of an experienced art team where I can make a difference and sharpen my skills and expertise in the gaming industry.
