My name, as you probably guessed, is Alex May.

  I was introduced to my first 3D modelling program when I was fourteen.  I had a blast, but as an introductory high school class it was no more than a taster.  My next foray into 3D came during my second year at Champlain College in Burlington, VT.  At the time I was studying Electronic Game Development as a Designer, and was required to take an introductory course to Maya.  By taking the course, I discovered I was in the wrong major.

 I love 3D.  While I have other hobbies and interests, nothing excites me more than the opportunity to sit down and sculpt an awesome landscape or character.  Bringing a scene to life through storytelling within the environment is particularly satisfying.  The props in a scene tell the viewer about the lives of the people who live there; the more interesting the story conveyed, the better the scene.

I just finished a contract workin on Project Spark: https://www.facebook.com/joinprojectspark/photos_stream.

I am currently working at Bungie
