I'm a NYC-based 3D Generalist with 10+ years experience as a CG Animator for TV commercials, films, music videos, video game cinematics and more! This is my latest demo reel featuring my skills as a 3D modeler, animator, rigger, and lighter.
I 3D Modeled this Hoover Cyclonic Vacuum in Maya, for a TV commercial produced at SuperFad. This was done with the product in-person, and no CAD file. I took high resolution digital photographs of the vacuum to get accurate image planes as reference, and completed the model in under 5 days.
I exported the completed vacuum model from Maya to SoftImage XSI, for the SuperFad team to complete lighting.
I was the CG lead for this photorealistic CG sneaker project created for Nike's main website featuring the debut of their new Free 5.0, 4.0, and 3.0 sneakers, produced at HUSH Studios. I personally 3D modeled and textured the Free 5.0 and 3.0. I helped manage a fantastic team of 3D Artists in completing the assets for 6 photorealistic sneakers, and also contributed to animation, and lighting at various stages to deliver a very complex deliverables package to allow for interactivity to show the simulated barefoot running flexibility of the Free series.

I was tasked with creating character rigs for a literal ARMY of monsters in this video game cinematic for Cartoon Network's Fusion Fall MMO at Freestyle Collective.
I also skinned weights for many of the hero characters like the player avatars, and Dexter of Dexter's Lab fame. I contributed to modeling props like the laser weapons, teleportation portal, and making sculpting adjustments to Dexter.
I created character rigs for an entire ARMY of various humanoid characters. Also contributed to 3D modeling accessories, camera animation, and some compositing of this Sol spot for Transistor Studios.
I 3D rigged all the characters in this fun music video for Yo Gabba Gabba at Panda Panther. Also took care of the 3D fur on the cat.
For this Virgin Broadband commercial produced at Golden Lucky, I did all the 3D modeling, animation, lighting, and layout for the backgrounds behind Samuel L. Jackson over 3 weeks. I worked with a lighting specialist to develop shaders, and an excellent team of compositors to deliver the final result.
I was tasked with the 3D lighting of this scene for a Toyota Interactive exhibit through HUSH studios. I also re-surfaced the Toyota Camry model from a CAD file, laid out the environment, and animated the car.
I 3D modeled, textured and lit the photorealistic 3D Lebron James 3 Sneaker for a NIKE web product video at Stardust. This was done with the product in-person, photo reference and no CAD file.
I 3D modeled the furniture & props for all the interiors and some patio furniture for these house planets on a project for Hornet Inc. I also did some camera animation.
I 3D modeled & textured the photorealistic Banana and Orange for this playful promo for VH1's "Dating Naked." It was a challenge getting the interior of the fruit right, along with making sure the models peeled correctly, but I liked the final result.
I was the CG Supervisor for the 5 second 3D Marionettes section of this Dish Network commercial for the production company: Wee Beastie. I 3D Modelled & Rigged the Marionettes, and lead a fantastic 3D team of my good friends and colleagues: Eugen Sasu (Character Animation), Christian Day (3D Lighting/Shading/Dynamics), & Aaron Ray-Crichton (Render Farm Services). I also helped with planning / budgeting / scheduling of the CG Marionettes section.
