Unfortunately I’ve had some issues with Time Warner cable and have been having the worst internet connectivity here at home for around 3 weeks, which has stalled any sort of updates until now. I’m starting fresh with a new simple portfolio site, where the hope is to occasionally post musings on games, tech art, animation, and the sort. I would love to be able to occasionally share some helpful tips along the way too. I’ll be attending GDC next week so maybe I’ll kick off the new site with some of that.
As for myself personally, it luckily didn’t take me very long to find a new home after the 38 Studios incident occurred. So many awesome game studios came out to Providence during a two week span to hold job fairs and try to grab the talent we had coming out of 38. I was actually in talks with 5 or 6 places for a few weeks after the studio closing and after a good amount of interviews, some tests, and some offers, I accepted a job offer to join the talented team at Avalanche Studios as a technical animator in their New York City studio. In a few weeks I’ll have been there for 8 months. After 2 years at 38 Studios working with the team I did, I’m extremely lucky to be working with another very talented team. With 38 being my first job in games ever, I was fortunate to have a man by the name of Jason Armstrong as my lead tech artist to work under and learn from. He helped guide me and teach me a ton of new skills that can only come from his years of experience. Avalanche has been my chance to take those skills and run with them, as I still work with others who I learn from on a daily basis, I’ve been given the chance to own a ton of different aspects of our project and have already built a bunch of rigging and animation tools as well as set up a rigging pipeline for the entire project. I think I’ve exhausted enough about myself now so I’ll leave you all at this and hope you come check back soon for more updates!
Decided it was time to redo my site a bit and update all my info since I’ve had a bit of a change of scenery in the past few months since I last touched this site. Come back soon!
