I create assets that go into our virtual environment. I sculpt objects from concept art in a 3D program, color it and give it attributes (such as reflectivity or glow).
What’s challenging about your job?
Creating something that doesn't exist on Earth. There are all of these animals and plants that are unique to Pandora which don't have an Earth-equivalent to base a model off of.
Most exciting thing about working on the sequels?
How close knit all the teams are — there isn't much of a divide between the departments. We interact with each other on a daily basis and I find myself to be lucky to be part of that.
First job in film?
First role in the industry was as an intern for Encore Film Productions in Myrtle Beach, SC. First paid role was as a Production Assistant for Impractical Jokers: The Movie.
Fun fact about yourself?
I have three pet rabbits named Margo, Alice, and Archimedes! They are very smart rabbits and are litterbox trained. Adopt don't shop!
