Biography

I am a graduate of a BA (Hons) in Games Design. My primary focuses are around the creation of 3D assets and props for placement in environmental settings within video games. However, I have a passion for learning new software relating to the production of games and animation.

My skill sets have enabled me to look at working in various other industries. Additionally I have volunteered my time at a local architects firm over the past summer period, which demonstrated that my skills were adaptable in this area and had the potential for further application.

Experience

Architectural Design Partners

Kingston upon Hull, GB · July 2014 – September 2014

I learnt how to use Autodesk CAD and implemented these skills to trace maps and start outlines for projects that would be developed further down the line by the rest of the team. This would allow the project to move much faster and not loose time creating the basic shape of the building. Additionally I worked on the creation of 3D models based on the floor plans I was given using Google Sketchup. This allowed the customer to gain better insight into the space that would be created.
