Who the heck am I? My name is Nathan Fariss and I work in the wonderful world of feature animation. I’m based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Aside from my day job, I also dabble a bit in photography and scale modeling.

I've done a bit of freelance illustration work, some public speaking, as well as a bit of consulting, so I am happy to discuss those things with interested parties. I'm also generally happy to answer any questions one may have about my past work, or 3d techniques.

See below for a bit about my career, as well as various ways to contact me.
