Albuquerque, NM, US



I graduated from The University of New Mexico's School of Architecture and Planning with a Master of Architecture in May 2010.  Currently I am working as a freelance 3D artist in Albuquerque, NM.  I have been doing visualizations for Apple Computer and Bart Prince, architect since July of 2010, as well as other work for Thomas Daniell, Architects.


During my graduate education I took a strong liking to history and theory, particularly phenomenology and typology.  I also came to realize the importance of representation in architecture.  As such, I invested heavily in 3D modeling, rendering and graphic design as a means of communicating abstract ideas.


In my little spare time I study aikido and iaido, as well as write electronic music for a small Canadian label.
