Kevin Alimia

It’s time to meet another Squid from TurboSquid HQ, and this week, we’re talking to Kevin Alimia, who was recently promoted to Assistant Technical Artist. Having previously worked in Member Services, Kevin utilizes his 3D modeling knowledge to help the artists meet a very high set of standards. Read more about Kevin below:

To start off, tell us a little about yourself! When you’re not at TS, what do you like to do?

Outside of work I do various things. I go out with friends, drinking. I like to go to the movies, I read, I draw/paint, I stay home and have movie days. In warmer days I like to just be outside walking around or go to the park. I also love to cook and bake, especially during the holidays!

What about when you’re at work? What does your day look like?

Typically, I come in early and work on personal projects.  Once the official work day starts, I spend my time working on Custom 3D projects for various clients.  That typically entails technical checks to be sure models meet certain standards and required points.  When I have a little “free” time I work on improving my skills and speed.

Neva by Nikola Dechev

Since you spend a lot of time looking at the models, do you have a favorite?

Mine, of course! …Actually, if I had to pick one, it would probably be Neva v3.3 (max9) by Nikola Dechev. Why? Mostly because I LOVE the turntable.

What’s your favorite thing about working at TurboSquid?

The thing I love the most about TurboSquid is the people I work with and the general atmosphere in the office. This place is like no other that I’ve worked for. The people are all extremely nice and willing to help each other. While every day is filled with work, we all have fun as well and make sure to spread the joy and laughter.

Before we go, tell us something random about yourself.

I’m a bibliophile; I love books. I love reading AND collecting them. So far I have a few hundred, though I’m still in the process of cataloging them, so I’m not sure about the exact number. I mostly read fantasy/fiction, but I’ve read a few other genres as well. My goal is to one day have my own personal library… preferably two stories.

Thanks, Kevin!
