Skills

Photoshop is my second home. I have enough SketchUp, and AfterEffects experience to get effective mockups done, and enough 3D hobbyist experience to pick up other 3D programs quickly for mockup creation purposes, but not enough for asset creation. Thanks to Captain Underpants physical set building, I’m also pretty handy with cardboard and hot glue.
