HI, I’M IRL TOO

Photo by: Yumiko Kobayashi 

Hi! I’m a 3D visual artist from NYC & I make work based on the internet and online trends.  I concentrate a lot of my work on technology and the emotional and social culture around it. You’ll see a lot of expression in my work conveyed through the figure or digital and nostalgic relics. I like to blur the line between the virtual and the real. I work mainly in 3D but I have a background in graphic design which I heavily put to use. I like to create animations for all different kinds of executions like augmented reality, virtual reality, ads, and events. I’ve shown and sometimes have spoken in places all over the world like Beijing, London, Sydney, Berlin, India, LA, & NYC. I’ve also been featured in a lot of fun publications like Creator’s Project, Widewalls, Sleek Mag, Monopol, Glamour, NestHQ, and Keen On. I really love staying on top of new technologies to further develop my work. Oh! And I love working in teams too. :]
