I no longer have a straightforward, one-word job title at 3D Internet, but that's perfectly alright with me. To put it simply - I create 3D virtual training simulations for electrical, gas and other energy companies. After working on over a dozen simulators in the last two years, I have participated in practically every stage of the design and development process.

Of those, my main focus has been in 3D modelling, and UI design and development:

  • I create numerous high-poly and low-poly models with LODs, UVs and textures
  • I build virtual training scenes using 3D assets created by myself and other artists
  • I have designed and developed a generalized user interface that can be easily extended and customized for different customer specifications
  • I aid in improving human-computer interactions and training logic within our simulators
  • I have even gotten to help convert several simulators to work with the HTC Vive VR headset!

Multi-disciplinary work is how I thrive in a work environment, and I don't think this is someting that will ever change about me. There's so much I have tried already, but there is still so much more I want to learn about every aspect of my work... and more!

I used to be a Master of Science in Computational Media Design student at the University of Calgary, with a Bachelor of Health Sciences in Bioinformatics. There, I found a passion for combining medicine, art and computer science in my research and work.

Over the years, I have tried to harness a variety of diverse skills such as interactive information visualization and 3D printing to create unique methods of teaching anatomical and physiological concepts to the general audience. I have high hopes that part of my past work on the “Giant Walkthrough Brain” (GWB) Project alongside Jay Ingram, Christian Jacob and the LINDSAY Virtual Human Team could eventually be extended for use in classrooms or science centers to spark interest in people of all ages and backgrounds.
