Major in Computer Animation and Interactive Media as a 3D generalist, able to pop into a variety of different roles as needs be. Concentrating in Interactive Media, 3D lighting, rendering and video & audio editing. My huge interest in new media and emerging technique encourages me to create new ideas for my designs. I'd like to create beautiful things, not only in aesthetic way, but also to create the beauty of humanity. My goal is to use visual elements to tell a story which could have huge impact on viewers. Every visual element could create a very unique story and it is my job to explore more interesting stories from them. I want to develop myself in the 3D industry and learn more about it.

My Project is:
A demo real of my general 3D works includes modeling, texture, render, lighting, animation, rigging and editing. Render and lighting are the large part of this reel which demonstrate various render/lighting skills of each scene. It shows my experience from stylized to realistic image render technique.

I mainly use XSI and Maya in this demo reel.

In the Robot & Skeleton animation, it was made by using XSI. I did modeling, texture, render, lighting, animation, rigging and editing.
The rest of still render scenes/ images are made in Maya.
