About Steve

I've taught at two local colleges The Art Institute of San Diego and Platt College. My main focus was teaching the character modelling pipeline, low-poly to high-poly, using Autodesk Maya, Mudbox, Pixologic Zbrush, and Photoshop. The level of complexity depended upon the course, in which I mostly taught upper level graduate students, but I also taught some basic Maya/Zbrush courses as well.

Most recently I just a finished a contract at Sony Interactive Entertainment in San Diego. There I worked as character blendshape artist working on AAA game titles such as: Days Gone, God of War, Spiderman, and other unannounced AAA titles.

I was once a student myself, just like you, so I know how frustrating it can be to tackle difficult courses of study. I believe having struggled with a few topics in college has helped me be a better teacher, especially in relating with my students.

Animation

I am a 3D Artist with over 10 years of experience in the game/film industry. I've worked with Maya as my primary 3D application since 2003. I've also taught character modeling and animation at the Art Institute of San Diego since 2009, and character modeling/animation at Platt College, San Diego since 2006. Most recently I worked at Sony SCEA as a character artist where Maya was our primary application.
