About

I was born and raised in Naples, FL. Coming from a traditional Italian family, family has always been an important part of my life. Every holiday my family gets together for big events with lots of food. I grew up with two older brothers which I have learned a lot from over the years. My family would camp often when I was younger and go on ATV trips in the RV. 

I'm like your average everyday artist. I enjoy art in multiple forms from cartoons, movies, paintings and sculpts. I'm a huge fan of comics and superheroes. I play board games and magic the gathering with friends when I can. I also enjoy outdoor activities like kayaking and four-wheeling.

December, 2015 I graduated from the University of Central Florida (UCF) with a Bachelor of Arts in Game Design. I'm graduating from Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy (FIEA) December 2017 with a Masters. I originally pursued film as a degree until I realized how much more I enjoyed creating art and finding my passion for video games.

I look forward to putting my creativity and talent to work in the industry. I have experience working with traditional art,  modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, and rendering. I use programs such as ZBrush, Maya, Photoshop, Substance, Unreal and Unity to complete my projects.
