I grew up in a small southern Ontario farming community chasing foxes and pheasants, pondering the vastness of the universe, and marveling at human flight. I have an inclination towards science, architecture, and everything creative, probably as a result of being an artist and explorer since childhood.

Through my ongoing pursuit of mindfulness and resiliency I continue to remind myself to live in the present moment. Bringing these same values into the entrepreneurial world, I launched Artemon Studios, an architectural and product visualization company.


Both architectural visualization (archVIZ) and product visualization (proVIZ) enable us to see the difference between the theoretical principles of concepts and the practical application of these in the real world.

The beauty, simplicity, and extreme visual capabilities of a high quality 3D visualization can communicate your vision in a way that no other medium can match. Realistic imagery, animation, and virtual reality can provide incredible cost/benefit ratios since spending thousands of dollars in the marketing phase of a project can be the difference in winning a multi-million dollar contract.

The 3D visualization workflow:

1) Modeling
2) Materials
3) Lighting
4) Rendering
5) Motion (Animation, VR & AR)
6) Post-Production

A few of my CG tools:

• 3ds Max (3D modeling & animation)
• SketchUp (3D modeling)
• SolidWorks (3D CAD)
• AutoCAD (2D CAD)
• V-Ray (photo-realistic rendering)
• Unreal Engine (realtime VR immersion)
• Photoshop (post-production)

My personal journey has rewarded me with excellence in:

• Computer skills
• Sense of design
• Communication
• Problem-solving
• Business sense
• Collaboration
• Visualizing a project
• Balancing work and life
