About me #
Hi, my name is Troy and I'm a student 3D artist currently studying on an FdA Games and Interactive Design degree in the UK.
I started experimenting with Blender in 2019 and before that I had experience using Adobe Photoshop for 5 years. I am interested in 3D graphics design for video games and TV, along with game design and motion graphics. Currently I am working on expanding my skillset out to other areas with a focus on lighting and rendering techniques in relation to environment art.

I am currently responsible for modernising the website and moving it over to Shopify from its current custom CMS platform. My other jobs consist of adding and editing products on each e-commerce platform as well as setting up the space to film in, including the lighting, cameras, and audio. I also edit and then upload the videos to both YouTube and IGTV. Other links: YouTube and Instagram.
Dialled in Bikes - Product management of an online store using Wordpress. Additionally, I made visual changes to the sites layout and content through the use of custom plugins.
WebBoss - I joined WebBoss for a week as the work I had chosen for work experience in Sixth Form. When I was there I sat with the designers and developers and observed the work I did before going off to create my own designs which would then be turned into templates for customers to use. I used Adobe Xd to create the designs which were different to what they were using however I was still able to easily fit into their team. After I had finished the week I was asked to come back to do more work over the coming holiday.
Hele Cross Service Station, Cox of Torbay - Whilst I was in secondary school I worked in two fuel stations to gain experience in working with others and communicating with customers/members of the public. My main jobs were just to unload deliveries and keep products stocked up, which later progressed to opening/closing up the shop at the start/end of the day.
