My name is Jason Lavoie, I'm an Environment Artist at Torn Banner Studios with 7+ years experience.
Previously I've worked for Ubisoft Toronto, Eidos Montreal and Digital Extremes, as well as providing Freelance Services to various AAA / Indie studios.
In my free time I've been focusing on learning Unity and C# / Visual Scripting (Playmaker), creating small game prototypes to help grow as a more rounded game developer.
