What up doe?! I'm Deborah Anderson! I'm originally from Detroit, MI and I'm now living in Los Angeles, CA. I'm a 3D Modeler that specializes in hard-surface modeling. I've done environment, prop, vehicle and industrial modeling throughout my career. I also have management and leadership experience.
My first job in the animation industry was as a 3D Modeler for Digital eMation in Seoul, South Korea where I had the opportunity to work on Family Guy, The Cleveland Show, Batman: The Brave of the Bold and Scooby-Doo. I worked on environments, props and vehicles using Autodesk Maya and Softimage XSI and implementing toon shading techniques.
I also worked at TurboSquid where I helped do quality assurance for their CheckMate Lite/Pro programs and gained leadership experience by managing multiple team in my Associate Producer position.
I spent 5.5 years working for state government as an Animation Specialist for Louisiana Economic Development - FastStart. We led the way in the country as far as innovation and providing specialized training materials and events for companies across the state of Louisiana. I created images and animation for several industrial manufacturing, chemical paper and oil & gas companies. I used Autodesk Maya, Cinema 4D and Adobe After Effects.
Most recently, I am a 3D Design teacher for the Academy of Media Arts in Crenshaw, Los Angeles where I teach 9th and 10th graders Blender.
I'm looking for an Environment Modeling position at an animation company.
