Hi, thanks for having a look at my portfolio website. My name is Christopher Grasso, and I have 5+ years experience in the realm of 3D modeling / computer graphics and virtual reality (VR) technology. I also have experience building responsive websites and doing print design. I am imaginative and passionate about all things design, and have worked on product, web, interaction, graphic, architectural, exhibit, and civil engineering projects. I have a BFA of Industrial Design from Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), as well as a Masters of Science in Design (Research) with a concentration in human factors from Arizona State University (ASU).

I was the lead project manager for an international research group of professors focused on 3D future-city modeling. My main weapons include 3DStudioMax + Vray, Rhino, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, WordPress, CSS + HTML. I also use Camtasia, VR-Design Studio (formerly UC-Win/Road), Sketchup, Google Earth Pro, and I am currently learning Sculptris, Modo and After Effects. I really enjoy learning new software, apps and pipelines. I do small business networking and IT support and tinker with building / fixing PCs. I have a working knowledge of emerging technology. I enjoy reading tech blogs and keeping up on digital innovation.
