Lighting and Look Development
Artist, Problem Solver, Creator
Lead Lighting and Look Development Artist
With 15 years of experience, I specialize in physically-based Lighting using Katana and rendering in Arnold and with OSL shaders. As a lead, I manage the show's material library, templates, and quality control of the team's work.
I am also the liaison between the lighting department and the shading/rendering development departments to make sure there is clear communication and development goals are achieved. With strong leadership abilities, I manage training and education on internal tools and workflows as well as take 'point' on creative and technical problems the show needs to solve. I can work independently to reach creative goals and can perform under tight deadlines. I enjoy working with large exterior environments, hero characters and as well as creating standards and sequence key-lighting.
Without lighting, the shots would be black.
