Brandon Volpe
3D Artist
Detroit, MI, United States

Hello, I’m Brandon Volpe, sometimes I go by the nickname “Brand.”  I live in Michigan, the Great Lakes State.  I am 37 years old and I am a multimedia artist.  I started out in architecture and engineering at Dakota High School. It was there when I became interested in 3D renderings and computer art. Now I am a  3D artist, now 3d art and computer graphics are my passion. I sometimes listens to Hendrix, and nirvana. He is a fan of Sci-fi and Cyberpunk dystopian future films.

Mission Statement:

As an artist my mission statement is to make 3D models of objects, products, buildings and their environments.  I am skilled in modeling, texturing, level design, user interface, compositing, and visual effects.  I put them together for interactive games, websites, TV, and other media.
