"Giovanni was a student of mine in an Advanced ZBrush class. He was one of my hardest working students, and every week made visible growth in his work. He's a talented modeler, with a good sense for character design, and has great skills for creating highly detailed textures. He's an artist that would fit well at any game studio".
