MEET YOUR MENTOR

I simply love teaching.

It’s incredibly rewarding to watch students join my course with questions and uncertainties about character sculpting, start growing their skills and confidence once they get pointed in the right direction.

I’ve been a Senior Character Artist for toys and games for the past 20 years working on projects for Disney Infinity, Overwatch, and Super Lucky’s Tail. I’ve also been asked to present at the ZBrush Summit. You might recognize me from my weekly live streams for Pixologic each Monday.

I’ve reached the point in my career where I’m ready to give back. I love to teach students how to become successful character artists because their success is my success.

"This is the course I wish I would have had available when I was first starting out!"

Instructor
