I have been a Professor of animation since 2009, experienced in teaching graduate and undergraduate classes in various aspects of animation. I am proficient in Character TD with primary skills in 3D rigging and modeling. I am also knowledgeable in surfacing (texturing and lighting), animation and production-pipeline. Although my main software of focus is Autodesk Maya, I am also comfortable with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, Substance Painter, Autodesk MudBox, 3DCoat, Autodesk 3Ds Max and Marmoset Toolbag.
Additionally, I enjoy making experimental films and have won many awards for my short-films. When I am not working I love thinking about the universe & our place in it. I love discussing superheroes. I like to cook, & I love playing sports; if it involves jumping, running or chasing, I'd love it. You are welcome to check my work on my website: https://www.iashwin.net/.
