What is your proudest achievement while working at Imageworks?
There is no greater feeling for an asset artist than when a supervisor can't tell if the image they are looking at is real or CG. This is always the goal but oftentimes isn't realized until the comp team gets their hands on it! SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME was chock full of moments when the work that my team was responsible for surpassed the "reality" bar, and I'm so proud of the work that we did on that show!
What inspired you to become involved in making movies?
I learned about 3D software while still in high school taking CAD and drafting courses. Working on a 2D blueprint then being able to rotate the camera to see it realized in 3D is the moment something inside of me sparked. I intended to pursue architecture as a career but when I saw the viability and intersection of my 3D passion with film making it was a done deal. I've been chasing this passion for well over a decade and being able to help tell stories through my medium is such a joy.
