Designed, modeled, and 3D printed these devil puppets for a cool VR project with Prologue called Memos From Hell.

VR Space Puppets

Characters I modeled in Maya and 3d Printed using a universal base armature I've been improving on. These were used in a Taco Bell VR demo ad experience.

Low Poly Models

Modeled these 3D objects for Vertebrae's plugin to dynamically plant into VR spaces. Topology and textures had to be highly optimized to accomodate for mobile platforms.

Character Models


Various sculpts from jobs and personal projects. Modeled in Maya and Zbrush.

Hard Surface Modeling

Here's a weapon I modeled and textured while working at Prologue, optimized for a VR game.
