From website:

As of March 2013, Leif has recently finished a month long commercial project as a digital matte painter at Spypost in downtown San Francisco. His tasks primarily included digital painting in Photoshop and 3D projection in Maya. Prior to that, he worked as a Concept Artist / 3D Generalist at SiXiTs Studios in Novato, CA. ( ) SiXiTs is a gaming company focusing on iOS / Android apps, as well as Facebook, and Mobile games. His tasks included sketching basic ideas to finalizing full colored renders under the direction of the Concept Art team. Upon approval, Leif, along with the 3D Modeling team, will begin building and texturing the hard surface geometry using the 3D software, Maya and Mudbox. (Nov 2011 - December 2012)

Originally from Cape Elizabeth, Maine, Leif is a 2010 graduate of the Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a Master's Degree in Visual Effects with a focus in Digital Matte painting and environments. At the Academy, he has spent the past few years studying the pipelines to creating industry standard visual effects as well as the essentials to film pre-visualization and post production.

Leif is a 2004 graduate from the University of Vermont with a bachelor's degree in Fine Art and a minor in Art History. Before coming to San Francisco, Leif focused on traditional art and working on commissioned paintings and illustrations in the New England area. Before transferring to Vermont, Leif started college at Northeastern University in Boston where he studied Animation and also contributed to the school newspaper with political cartoons.

The Urban Knights was named the official mascot for the school, but they did not have a logo yet. Leif's design of the 'Lion Shield' was selected as the top design, and is now the school's athletics logo. While pursuing his artistic career, there has always been the equal passion for athletics.
