AAA Lighting Artist
Washington DC, United States

Summary

AAA lighting artist with a background in commercial photography. After earning a photography degree and working in the field for 5 years, I jumped into the world of 3D. This new frontier provided me with the opportunity to combine my two passions: lighting and immersive storytelling. I have a keen eye for dramatic lighting and a solid foundation behind the lens as a photographer. I specialize in real-time cinematics and level lighting for AAA games.
