My name is Scott and I am a Technical Artist. I currently live in Iceland but I was born and raised in the United States. I grew up playing video games and have always loved finding ways to exploit game mechanics to give me an edge against my friends. Later, I found that I use these same sort of skills to find solutions to problems in game development. I love learning how systems function together and finding creative, efficient, and effective solutions to complex problems. I have found that I have a knack for foreseeing potential technical hurdles and finding solutions for them before they can impact production.
I have over six years of experience working as a Technical Artist in the games industry. I worked as a technical artist on three MMO projects: EVE Online, The Agency, and a currently unannounced title. I specialize in working with characters and character pipelines but I have experience working in other pipelines such as environments and animation as well. I write tools, trouble shoot technical issues, and do production work to ensure that deadlines are met and at the highest possible quality.
I enjoy working on a team with talented and motivated people. I take every opportunity to learn from those around me and share what I have learned in return. I take direction and criticism well, but I also have no problem completing tasks with little direction. I am able to schedule and prioritize my tasks in order to meet deadlines on time.
Also, I love ice cream. Passionately.
