Art and Design Mentorships

In addition to traditional tutoring, I also offer comprehensive mentorship packages. Where tutoring tends to focus on direct hands-on learning, my mentorship program is more holistic, focusing on portfolio development and art direction. I provide mentees with tailored curriculums, regular feedback sessions, instructional videos, and more, all customized to match their schedules and learning styles.

Blender Add-On Development

As an experienced technical artist and Blender Foundation contributor, I can help you learn and harness the power of Blender’s add-on infrastructure and python modules. Whether its tools for artists, pipeline integrations, 3rd party application integration, asset integrity checkers, or custom import/export tools, I can help you get the most out of Blender

About Me

I am a prop artist, technical artist, and art ops engineer. I specialize in helping small studios develop flexible and streamlined asset pipelines, bridging the gap between art and development using open source software, customized tooling, and intelligent automation.

For me, art direction and production infrastructure are intrinsically linked — the constraints and affordances of our art pipeline shapes our ability to be creative. The deeper we understand our tooling, the freer we can be in using it. Easy iteration means easy expression. You have to understand both sides if you want to get anywhere.

…Which is also the crux of my professional background. I worked as a technical writer and documentation specialist from 2012 to 2017, taking on roles that were progressively more technical and more creative, until I ended up transitioning to art production and tooling development full-time near the middle of 2018.

Since then, I’ve helped studios develop custom Blender forks, deployed a live media integrated EaaS platform, developed a cross-DCC entity semantics framework, accidentally learned full stack web development, worked as a prop artist, and currently freelance as a technical artist and art ops engineer.

Sorry my frustration leaked your way. I just might have it right this time. Got both my machines printing well. With Sketchup, I used Cleanup 3 and Solid Inspector 2.I might just have it right this time. Printing now, but the first couple of layers are looking great! Boy, its been a slow learning curve, but you are a great teacher!
