About Eric


Bio

While working at Sony Pictures Imageworks, I was a lead modeler, where one of main jobs was to mentor and lead many of our interns and new hires. I feel I have a very good understanding of how to break down problems into easy to digest bits for students to understand.

I've been working 12+ years in the VFX and animation induy as a 3D modeler on such films as Spiderman Homecoming, Netflix's Love Death and Robots, and Men in Black International. Currently I work at Blizzard Entertainment as...

While working at Sony Pictures Imageworks, I was a lead modeler, where one of main jobs was to mentor and lead many of our interns and new hires. I feel I have a very good understanding of how to break down problems into easy to digest bits for students to understand.

I've been working 12+ years in the VFX and animation induy as a 3D modeler on such films as Spiderman Homecoming, Netflix's Love Death and Robots, and Men in Black International. Currently I work at Blizzard Entertainment as a Senior 3D modeler on the Cinematics team. I am focused on 3D modeling for VFX/Animation industries. I have expert knowledge in character and hard surface modeling in Maya, Zbrush, Mudbox, Marvelous designer, and Wrap3 and many more software packages. In addition I am well versed in human and animal anatomy sculpting in Zbrush and Mudbox.

If you would like to know the basics of python for most fields I can definitely help. If you are interested in some intermediate Python for Maya knowledge I am a good source of information, as I currently write Maya modeling python tools part time when not modeling.

If you want to break into the VFX, Animation or Video game industries as a 3d modeler, or are someone who wants to improve their portfolio, I believe I can help you achieve this. I'm always staying current with the latest industry techniques and software. Or maybe you're a very experienced modeler, but would like to branch out and learn some scripting to make your life a little easier. I hope to help you achieve your goals!

I have worked more than 12 years in the Film Visual Effects and Animation Industry. I graduated with a BFA from Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2011. I've worked for companies such as Sony Pictures Imageworks, Method Studios and currently work at Blizzard Entertainment.
Autodesk Maya

Autodesk Maya

Autodesk Maya is my tool of choice for my job where in the past 12+ years I've been a 3d Modeler working in the Film/Animation industry. I've worked on major blockbuster films such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Men in Black International, Spiderman: Homecoming, and many more. Modeling is my main skill, but I am also very skilled in MEL and Python scripting in Maya, as well as some basic rigging, animation, lighting and FX.

Eric has been incredibly helpful and is very knowledgeable. He has been able to help me solve the issues I have been having using Maya. His communication about booking and asking questions to prepare for lessons has been excellent.
