I'm a software developer who is trained as a visual effects artist and my mission is make tools for CG artists that let you focus on the artwork and get results quickly. As a fellow artist I know the pain or endlessly repeating steps with finicky tools.
I worked 2 years in 3D scanning and after that I was a software developer in Geographic Information Systems for 7 years. Writing software and solving technical problems is what I do best and I want to apply that to an art I love, such as film, TV, animation, photography ...
It took me a long time before I realized I had to take the plunge and do an intensive training VFX course at Escape Studios, but I'm very glad I did.
Now I'm looking forward to keep learning, improving my artistic skills and also my technical crafts. And I hope to help many people tell stories and make those stories an inspiration to others.
