I am an aspiring Material Artist who focuses on creating my own materials through Substance Designer. I enjoy the process of creating each material by hand and I believe this is important to retain the artistic touch within my work. I have 5 years of experience in Maya and 2 years of experience in Substance Designer and Unreal Engine. I am always open to learning new software and techniques.
