I am an experienced environment artist with a passion for games. I have extensive experience with building levels and I have a good understanding of gameplay requirements and level design. I have taken levels from the initial idea and blockout phase through production, outsourcing, polish and shipping and I consider my understanding of actual games production one of my core strengths.
I started my career doing an internship at Blitz Games as part of my education and in 2008 I started working at IO Interactive. At IO I most notably worked on Hitman Absolution and HITMAN. On HITMAN I was the primary graphics driving force behind the critically acclaimed Episode 2; Sapienza. I worked on the level from day 1 and followed the level through the production to the day it shipped. I then went on and started up Episode 6; Hokkaido which I followed to the late bugfixing phase.
I feel comfortable with responsibility and I have experience with leading and delegating work in a production environment.
As a person I am a nice and easy going guy and I pride myself in being reliable and organized. My taste in games art favors games and environments that has character, edge and tells an interesting story.
