Senior Instructor - Modeling
Travis originally hails from Edmonton, Alberta where he attended the University of Alberta Engineering program as well as taking some studio fine arts courses. After a series of career changes and misdirection, Travis decided to move to the coast and fuse his love of science and art by learning computer graphics.
After graduating from VFS's 3D Animation & Visual Effects program, he went to work at EA and then Rainmaker Animation (formerly Mainframe). There he had the privilege of working in many roles, including modeling supervisor, visual effects artist, and pipeline technical director. His film and video game credits include Night at the Museum, Max Steel: Dark Rival, WET (cinematic trailer), Need For Speed: ProStreet, and many direct to DVD projects. He served as the Lead Shading Artist and Pipeline Technical Director on Nutty Professor 2: Facing the Fear.
Travis is thrilled to be able to bring his knowledge and skills to the 3D Animation program at VFS.
