I never would have guessed that I would spend my free time making rocks, painting grass, and designing lawnmowers. Yet, here I am. I'm a 3D artist working on Mow N Go Racing.
Early DaysModding was where I got started making art assets for games. Sim City 2000 had the SCURK, where my brother and I made a custom tileset. I don't think it was too bad for a kid in middle school!

Sacramento Indie Game Devs
I moved to Sacramento from the Bay Area for college, studying Business at Sac State. It wasn't until after I graduated that I started thinking about trying to break into the games industry in Sacramento. I ended up back in school at American River College to take 3D Modelling courses.
I found myself bouncing around many small indie groups, working on many hopeful projects: an MMORPG, a small mobile game, a side-scrolling SHMUP, and other game groups that eventually fizzled out. Eventually I landed with a fun kart racing game called Mow N Go Racing!
