Hello, I'm James!

I am an experienced 3D Technical Artist and Web Developer with a passion for game design and interactive experiences. I worked for over 7 months developing XR applications for Booz Allen Hamilton and their DoD clients, and I have over 1 year's experience working on payed freelance contracts for 2D graphics, 3D animations, and web development projects. I'm skilled in creating optimized 3D assets. I actively work in both Unity and Unreal. I have written editor tools for Unity, themes for Wordpress, addons for Blender, built REST APIs, and developed multiple web applications that make use of third party APIs. These include Amazon Polly, Cloudinary, Redmine, Binance's Crypto Exchange, and others. I'm proficient in Node.js, C#, Python, Java, C++, CSS3, HTML5, and other programming languages and web development frameworks. I am well-versed with source control, including Plastic, Perforce, and Git in both a game and web development enviroment. I am studying Visualization and minoring in Computer Science at Texas A&M University and I am graduating in May of 2019.

Graphic Design

Design is a fundamental part of my skill set. As a freelance artist, I create logos, branding, and promotional materials for my clients's buisnesses. Understanding the clients product and how to convey its value in a visual form is what I do best.
