I’ve heard that when an artist is creating a bio page, they are supposed to write it in the third person. To me that feels unnatural and I believe art is a part of our nature and is best expressed when a person feels most themselves. For that reason I’m actually going to continue in the first person. I thing the best way for me to start introducing myself is to tell you my name. A lot of people have asked how to say it so I hope this helps Travino (Truh-Vee-No), and I'm a human 🙂. I love creating digital things and I have a deep interest in digital photography and 3D effects. In 2021 I completed my Associate degree in photography while working part time as a freelance wedding photographer, which set the foundation for me to pursue my Bachelors degree in visual effects. I am originally from various parts of the Silicon and Willamette Valley, so I was pretty much raised to be a hippie techie at heart. When I don't have a camera in hand, I'm usually at my computer studying and experimenting with various 3D programs. So far, I can say that Blender has been my favorite, followed closely by Unreal Engine and Houdini. After serving nearly 10 years in the military, I learned the importance of being both flexible and punctual, I now use both the skills gained in the military and from art school to be more critical about my own work while still eager to receive constructive feedback.

I've been inspired by artists across various disciplines spanning from traditional photographers such Platon Antoniou and Annie Leibovitz to 3D artists like Handel Eugene and Mike Winkelmann (Beeple). Their mastery and balance of light and design has intrigued and captivated me and I hope to also show their spirit in my work. My goal is to create thought provoking images and immersive 3D designs.
