I started painting when I was very young at the age of 6. In middle school, I was placed in a gifted fine arts program where I studied oil painting and drawing. Some of my idols include Michelangelo, Da Vinci and Rafael. When I reached college, I fell deeply in love with impressionism and Dadaism. Salvador Dali is one of my favorite artists of all time.
After many years as a traditional artist, I began studying digital arts in 2001. I have a BA in Animation and a MFA in Visual Effects. During my career as a 3D Artist, I worked directly with directors and producers on various advertising and commercial projects. Developing a keen eye for color and composition is essential for producing photo realistic CGI. As such, I challenges myself on every project to produce a better effect. At present, I am a CG generalist doing modeling, texturing, rigging, and compositing work.
In my spare time, I still loves painting and drawing. I enjoys biking with friends and promotes an active lifestyle.
