My name is Joshua Adam Billups; I grew up in the San Francisco bay area. I worked and studied in the IT Industry, but during the economic down turn in the last few years I decided to turn passion for video gaming and table top RTS roleplaying into a career.
After enrolling at Vancouver Film School, I found that I had a natural eye for Level Design and Lighting which this portfolio will display. After the first terms at VFS I decided to broaden my skill set to encompass 3D Modeling/Game Art and Writing to make sure I could understand as many facets of game design I could. Now that I have graduated from VFS with practical ability to design a game from the ground up using scrum/agile development going through all of the stages from Pre-Pro to Production, Alpha and Beta Phases, culminating with a Post-Mortem. I plan to Join the ranks of the industry professionals the people that entertained me though out my child hood to learn and build on my current ability to eventually take the reins to progress video games as not only an entertainment medium but also and educational one.
I hope you enjoy your stay if you have any questions please feel free to contact me using the Contact menu on the top right of my portfolio.
