About Me

As a post-production and Stereo 3D artist, I have knowledge in motion graphics, visual effects, 3D animation, and video editing that stems from a four year education in New Communications Media at the State University of New York at Cortland and the Digital Animation and Visual Effects School.
As my enclosed resume indicates, I have experience in working with many top, media industry related programs such as Adobe Master Suite CS5, Nuke, Cinema 4D and Final Cut Studio.
I am constantly expanding and refining my skills in these programs along with others to learn new techniques that will enable me to become a better-rounded artist. I have a love for motion graphics and Stereoscopic 3D and I would love the opportunity to bring my skills to your company. I finished an intensive year at the Digital Animation and Visual Effects school where we focused on 3D modeling and visual effects/ compositing (green screen and 3D). I worked on a job at MG Studios stereo compositing for the new feature film, Conan the Barbarian (2011). I am currently working on The Avengers (2012) as a depth/finaling artist and recently completed working on Titanic 3D (2012) for Deluxe 3D. I am seeking a job in the stereoscopic 3D and motion graphics industry because that is my passion and I would like to further my career in that direction. I have 3+ years experience in the industry and would like to continue my career with your company..
I also have knowledge and experience in the production phase. I recently concluded my time at the Fireball Run Adventurally as an assistant executive producer where I acted as a production assistant, videographer, video editor, and social media specialist. I also worked for Steve Weed Productions, where I shot sporting events and edited video and edited commercials. I am willing to help out the company, beyond the position, with the skills I possess whenever I am needed. While working on Avengers and Titanic 3D, I was one of the few artist who worked in several different areas in the pipeline. In addition to the above skills I can offer you the following benefits:
• A new, fresh perspective in the creative thinking of the company.
• An eager and loyal worker who is willing to do anything to help out the company to further my knowledge in all areas of media.
• Flexibility and the ability to adapt to different situations with a willingness to stay extra hours and work under pressure if the project is on a tight deadline.
You can be reassured that hiring me will be the right choice. I take pride in my work and strive to be the best at what I do, no matter what it is. One of my main goals in life is to be known all over the world amongst the industry as a top tier artist.
Thank you for your time and consideration while reviewing my resume and cover letter. I will be looking forward to hearing from you.

I have been in the industry since 2008.
