“I have been working full-time as an artist since I was 19. I knew from an early age I wanted a career in a creative role. Though I did consider a career in music for a time, my passion for drawing and painting (instilled in me by my mother) was much stronger. I actually wanted to design video games as I enjoyed writing stories and developing worlds and characters. I saw the artist role as a way into the industry initially. Once I started teaching myself modeling and animation however, I found I actually liked working at the high-end since back then game engines were fairly basic.”
