A virtual reality experience, Our America places players in the shoes of an African American father who comes to terms with police brutality while driving his son to school.

Randomized Building Generator UNITY

The Random Building Generator was a personal project of mine. Built in Unity, users are able to generate procedural houses with a single click, drawing from a library of facades, roofs, and garden assets which I created in Blender and Substance Painter. All materials are my own authorization in substance designer.

Empath

At USC Games Expo 2019, prepare for the action-packed, virtual-reality RPG, Empath! Built for the #Oculus, with some of the most advanced gestural controls in VR, Empath combines pulse-pounding combat, eye-popping visual effects, and gives power to the player as they become the hero of their own exciting adventure! As one of the Environment Artists I was tasked with creating low_poly buildings inside of Maya.
