spain,  madrid CICE Escuela de Nuevas Tecnologías,  Máster en producción audiovisual con autodesk Maya,  April 22, 2015
I've been a software engineer for nearly 4 years working with C++/C#/Java.
My latest work experience was in a videogames company where i could work closely with artists.
I discovered then that i wanted to pursue my dream since childhood which was attending some art classes in order to get back as a mixture of artist with keen eye for details and a person capable of automating some tedious tasks always focusing on leveraging 3d art workload.
My goal is to specialize in a 3d art field such as rigging, vfx etc where my programming skills come handy.

I definitely have discovered my path after some years wandering,and my path is art!
