A little bit about myself...
Hey there, my name is Aaron and I'm fairly certain that I have the best job in the world. My current position is Visual Effects Artist at Toys for Bob, an Activision development studio and the home of Skylanders. I've previously been involved in a number of different facets of game development , including Production, QA, and Audio. I really can't see myself working in any other industry.
As a VFX Artist, I've had fantastic opportunities to create a wide variety of game effects assets, including super powers, weapons, vehicles, and environments (fire, smoke, dust, water, etc.). While I am more than competent in all of these areas, my favorite activity is making worlds come alive, so I love creating and populating levels with environment effects. Pretty much every aspect of my work is incredibly satisfying.
Other than making games, I quite enjoy a number of leisure activities. Some of these include: scuba diving, surfing, astronomy, photography, drawing, hiking, music, movies, and brewery exploration.
In general, I would describe myself as kind, intuitive, organized, determined, and hard-working.
I'm always interested in hearing about new projects and opportunities, so feel free to contact me should you ever feel so inclined!
