I love working on great projects with inspiring people that bring out our best. I started drawing since a young age and decided to pursue a career in animation. I went to Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a major in animation & VFX. Thereafter, I entered video game companies working primarily as a texture artist for in-game environments, while also creating 3D models, illustrating concept art, and marketing.
After 5-6 years of work, I decided to get an MBA at UCSD Rady School of Management (graduated March 2019) because I wanted the ability to sustain a business, or at least understand the economics needed to realize my ideas. Currently working with Digital CyberCherries on various games and teaching digital illustration & animation to kids which I believe has been a greater learning experience for me than my students.
Every art has its time. Our work is the bi-product of our lives and they reflect the state of the world we're in. As we are with our past, the future will know what drove us to do what we did. This site is the archive of my work, welcome to HalleckArts.
