About

Jared Kuharski is a Technical Artist with a focus on 3D modeling and environment art. Since 2006, he has worked across multiple disciplines: environment art, rigging, and mobile app design. During this time, he has shipped over 30 titles spanning consoles, PC, and mobile. He is driven to constantly develop his craft and enjoys mentoring others.

Since 2014, Jared worked as a Technical Artist on the Amazon game engine Lumberyard. During this time, his focus was to create technical demos showcasing new features of the engine. These demos were used at SIGGRAPH, GDC, and taken to universities around the country. The demos were also used to evangelize, teach best practices, and broadcast the capabilities of the engine. Between conferences, he traveled domestically and internationally to onboard customers in the use of Lumberyard. He was an interface between white-glove customers and internal engineering teams. Jared documented new features and proposed design changes to make the engine more creator centric.
