Senior Environment Artist, Outsource Manager, CD Projekt Red
I am a Senior Environment Artist specializing in architectural modeling, texturing, lighting and decorating. Presently in Red, however, I perform a combination of duties from creating new structures, detailing, pipeline planning, asset management, team coordination and outsourcing.
I began my career years ago as a graduate of BA Multimedia. I mainly started as a graphic designer over random gigs from signboards to banner ads. I got into the game industry through pure luck. I joined an outsourcing company in the Philippines knowing that I’d like to progress my skill in 3D. In the two and a half years that I stayed there, I somehow honed my skills as a project manager. Still, I wasn’t satisfied. I knew that complacency would have gotten me rusty eventually.
I traveled to Canada in an attempt to absorb things that I could potentially have missed out upon--That was a fantastic, multi-cultural experience.Anyway, after a year of 16-hour days in Vancouver Film School, I’d like to think that all that effort paid off.
I am currently living in Warsaw, Poland working for an amazing roleplaying game developer. I like traveling, flying around, taking pictures of architecture, checking out historical locations and visiting museums. Whenever the opportunity arises, I also enjoy giving talks in game developer conferences.
