SKILLS

IN A NUTSHELL . . .

It was during that time that I realized computer animation could combine my love for art and this desire to work in computer graphics. So after graduating from FIU with a BFA, I enrolled at 

Full Sail University for a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Animation

At Full Sail, I learned everything about computer animation, from modeling to rigging, texturing to animating, and much more. It was an honor to graduate as valedictorian and my dream of being a CG Artist became a reality. 

Currently I'm a UI Artist for 2K Games and have the pleasure of developing for the NBA 2K Franchise Series. We're very proud of the series and hope you enjoy the games as much as we enjoy making them.


My love for art and animation is equaled only by the love I have for my family, my fraternity (Phi Gamma Delta - Fiji),

my alma maters, and my friends. 

I currently reside in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA.
