1993-2000: This piece even though it's old still stands. I did this in 1998 while at Ford Motor Co. I used Alias to ray-trace this headlamp to confirm the appearance of the production parts prior to the actual lamp being made. While today this is relatively easy to achieve, it was ground breaking when it was created. In fact I even surprised the Alias software engineers. They didn't think such high level of realism could be done. After this project I was invited to participate as part of the render engine development team.
Commercial CG Art

Here are a few samples from my commercial projects. The main focus is the automotive industry. I have also worked in the Heavy truck design field and touching the furniture business as well.

I have been involved in the modeling, rendering and retouching in all of these samples. What ever needed to complete the task, I do.
