Netherlands,  Amsterdam SAE Institute Amsterdam,  3D Graphics Certificate, Autodesk Maya,  October 31, 2014
I’m an Amsterdam based creative / 3D designer with more than 10 years experience on design. I’ve always been passionated about visual arts that have a story to tell. I believe in the power of graphic, but I believe more in the power of motion graphics.
My main focus is on photo-realistic digital environments, character- and scene creations. Matte Painting, lighting, and character creations/modeling is my favorite part, but I love to learn new techniques and developing both my technical and artistic skills. Im always keep going to VFX festivals to learn from invited speakers and guests, continuously trying to update my knowledge and skills on the softwares Im using, because my work is my hobby too, and basically I am the happiest person in the world when I have the chance to work. Even on my personal designs/scenes, even for request, I love to do my job.

Please have a look to a short animation from my models: Lovely story about a mouse :)
