A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

I started working in the industry as a junior graphic designer in 2009 while studying part time on my BA degree in visual communication. As time progressed I started to evolve my skill set and entered the motion graphics industry in 2011. From there on I started to explore a lot more with motion but also 3D as a medium.

Now I am always busy with something that is either in the realm of design, 3D characters or motion graphics. I am like a little boy in toy shop captivated by all the amazing things out there.
