A motivated and passionate 3D Generalist with a proven ability to develop high quality content ranging from stylized to realistic whilst keeping the scenes functional for game development, the costs down all whilst meeting deadlines. Possessing the artistic ability and imagination to create content that is both visually and creatively stimulating for the user and player. I have a thirst for knowledge, am a very quick learner and am certainly not a 9 -5 person as I feel there is always something I can improve on or learn to make projects better both inside and outside of work.

Colchester, United Kingdom
My past roles for clients include 3D asset & scene design, blueprint customization and prefabs In Unreal Engine 4, Material creation and texture editing in Substance Painter and Zbrush.
The software I use daily is Blender 2.8+, Zbrush, Substance Painter, Unreal Engine, RizomUV. I have recently moved from Maya (about 5 years experience) over to Blender as I feel Maya is being left behind in a lot of areas now.
My day to day tasks range from creating mood boards for future projects, grey-boxing scenes for efficiency, creating models for scenes, using Zbrush to create detail maps for Substance Painter, talking to clients on a daily basis as well as creating social media content to continuously promote my services.
I also have experience In Motion Capture (I own 2 motion capture suits and also AI Motion Capture software) and photogrammetry.
I also provide 3D assets for the unreal marketplace, Unity Marketplace and my own website over at www.3dassetlibrary.com
