Thanks for visiting my site. My name is John Foley, I'm a New York based Maya 3D Generalist. In the past couple years I've worked with design and event companies, as well as two technology start-ups. As soon as possible I want to work in film and advertising with a Visual Effects studio here in New York. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of Art & Design at The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. During my short four years there I studied a range of creative mediums, but I have always been most passionate about 3D modeling and Digital Production. In my free time I enjoy growing bonsai trees, as well as getting better at writing code. I'm an active SIGGRAPH member, and I go to as many local industry Meetups as possible to expand my network.

Feel free to contact me via email about freelance work, and collaboration. Please note, as a professional artist I do not take unpaid requests.
