About

I'm an environment artist with over 10 years of experience in multiple disciplines. My background is in architecture and I worked as a designer for several years before transitioning into CG. I believe this broad spectrum of experience helps me to look at challenges from multiple perspectives and always find new ways to solve problems. What drives me thorough out my entire career is creating new worlds and environments that didn't exist before.

I'm very team focused and really enjoy working collaboratively with other people. Healthy and enjoyable work environment is very important to me and I find it to be key for producing best work. I try to maintain this positive environment around me and constantly improve on selfless attitude.
