About the Instructor:

Im very passionate about 3D. I’m currently creating courses in Maya, ZBrush, and Substance Painter. I’ve been teaching Autodesk Maya and Pixologic ZBrush at a college level for 10 years. I’ve also worked for the Digital Media Academy and have taught Maya and ZBrush to a wide range of learners spanning from high school students to instructors. I have experience tutoring students 1-on1 since 2006. In 2010 I won “Teacher of the Year” at my college and two years later I won a world wide award “CG and VFX instructor of the Year” by Digital Tutors.

My professional profile outside of teaching includes a wide range of real world experience. I have posed and lit characters for “The Order 1886” (Playstation 4). I was a character modeler / texture artist / and rigger for Gemvara. I’ve done modeling / lighting / rendering for several iPhone and iPad apps. I’ve worked on some independent games, product visualizations and have one of the top rated online 3D libraries in the world. I’ve been teaching Maya since 2006 but have been mastering it since 2002.
