After a 25 year career in software engineering and business analysis, it was time to return to the passion and creativity of my younger years. I enrolled in the Art Institute of California in 2009 but was not content to wait until after graduating to pursue employment in the industry. I have served a fledgling game company as Art Director and an independent film studio as Lead Modeler/Texture Designer. I've created animations for an orthopedic surgeon to use in videos and presentations, and am currently assisting a church develop an animated introduction for a theatrical production.
I believe my most valuable trait is my extensive experience as a technical project lead/director.
UPDATE! I finally got around to creating a portfolio: artninjastudio.daportfolio.com…
UPDATE. Part Deux! I have a full website now (it's still a WIP, but it's getting close). www.artninjastudio.com/
