I am an experienced game lighting artist with a strong technical background and an excellent eye for lighting and colour.
I have worked on some of the most visually impressive games ever created, such as the Crysis franchise and Ryse: Son of Rome. In particular, I am the sole lighting artist behind the single player campaigns of the award-winning and visually acclaimed Crysis 3, Crysis 2 and Crysis 1 Console games.
In 2014, I joined the highly successful Rockstar North studio in Scotland. I participated in the development of Grand Theft Auto V for next gen, as well as several DLCs for GTA Online. I am currently working on the highly anticipated Read Dead Redemption 2 game as Principal Lighting Artist.
For more information, please see my detailed resume or contact me on LinkedIn.

This presentation is part of my talk at the GDC Europe 2013 in Cologne. The 50 minutes session goes through the production of Crysis 3 and showcases important lighting principles for creating appealing scenes. I also explain how physics can help create better materials and textures, using physically-based rules, and how the CryENGINE lighting features were used in Crysis 3 to create one of the best visual experiences in a video game. Furthermore, several case studies provide a clearer demonstration of the methods and workflows I used to design the lighting for outdoor, indoor and cinematic scenes.
Enjoy 30 additional bonus slides as well, that were not shown during the talk, as 50 minutes is rarely enough to talk about such a wide topic of discussion.
