My passion and the focus of my studies is composite work within the VFX industry. I am able to take on entry-level positions as a still image compositor, but I am working towards a position as a live-action compositor and eventually wish to be a part of the VFX producer team. I have experience in the medical field with staying calm and collected under extreme pressure. From my time in the military,, I have experience with leadership and management of 500+ persons from multiple different units and coordinating their teamwork on large scale operations as well as day to day functions. From my time as an art director with a graphic design firm I have experience with managing dailies, interacting with clients, and tracking the progress of projects from planning to delivery. I am currently seeking a mentorship, but I regularly attend expos pertinent to our industry at all possible opportunities. I have computer networking certifications from the military that are beneficial to my career as I can provide much of my own IT support and contingency plans as well as provide that same support to my team without having to spend hours to days waiting for someone to come fix our desktops or diagnose network issues. I am currently working independently to attain certification in Python, a coding language useful to both Nuke and Autodesk software.
