Senior Environment Artist
Melissa Smith - Santa Monica Studio
2018 was a hallmark year for Melissa. Working as a Senior Environment Artist at Santa Monica Studios, she shipped the newly re imagined God of War(PS4.) Additionally, it marked her 10th year as a game developer. In that time, she has shipped 5 AAA titles with the large teams of Sony, Insomniac, and Vigil as well as worked with smaller indie teams on ground breaking projects. She is forging a path by fuzing together her passion for art with her passion for video games, and is both humbled and inspired daily by the people who make up this industry. This decade of growth and mentorship has developed her skills tested through personal experiences. She is honored to share these insights with you.
