A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Technology Specialist, 3D Artist, and Lover of Orchestral Soundtracks

Why, hello there!

I’m Chris. An Englishman turned Angelino courtesy of my wonderful wife. My thoughts on that? The traffic is hell, but the restrooms are amazing. (seriously, the U.S. has us beat hands-down when it comes to toilet technology).

So what do I do in sunny L.A? Currently I’m a Learning Environments Specialist at the USC School of Pharmacy. That’s a fancy way of saying I make sure our 600+ students are able to have lectures in a technology driven environment, however I also work with the various school divisions to provide a diverse range of creative & technology based services – from video production to website design, from telepresence to software support.

Oh, and as you may have noticed, I have a penchant for 3D science fiction artwork. And I’m pretty darn good at it too.

I’m proud to have worked at:

USC School of Pharmacy
University of Sussex
Kings manor Community College

PROJECTS

PROJECTS AND ARTWORK I’M PROUD OF

This is a variety of projects I’ve embarked upon, some for work and some for my own indulgence. The 3D artwork listed here is available for download in HD, and where feasible / appropriate I have also made any background mattes I created available for download.

If you utilize any of my artwork in your own creations all I ask for is a small credit – e.g. ‘Background by Chris Jones’. If you have any suggestions or specific requests feel free to get in touch – I don’t bite (hard)!

SKILLS

A SMATTERING OF THINGS I’M PRETTY GOOD AT

Learning Environments

At the core of what I do for a living. I support, advise upon, and train within learning environments in higher education establishments. From meeting rooms to lecture halls, on-site to eLearning, chances are I’ve dabbled in it somewhere along the line. And if I haven’t, I’ll quickly learn.

Digital Art

I don’t consider myself a graphic designer, but more a digital artist, as represented by my portfolio of projects on this site. Whilst I have a particular knack for science fiction artwork I’ve found the skillset immensely useful in doing designs of a more conventional nature as part of my regular work.

Web Design

The world wide web is the great marvel of our time, and I stride to stay current with best practices and modern trends. Simple HTML driven static sites, PHP driven dynamic sites, WordPress and Drupal driven CMS sites. I’ve had a complete gamut of experience.

Video Production

Shooting, non-linear editing, post production, VFX, and authoring. My time working in multimedia support at two universities has led to my developing firm skills in the area of digital video, as well as the software packages commonly used.

Information Technology

One cannot work in multimedia without keeping one foot firmly wedged in the IT door. Remaining current on IT technologies, services, and platforms is essential. I’ve worked to support software on desktops, and liaised with network teams to track down firewall issues.

Photography

I don’t classify myself as a photographer, but I certainly know my way around a camera (and not just the automatic point and shoot nonsense). I’ve even been told by PR directors that I’ve got a ‘good eye’.
