Summary

Hello,
I am a 3D artist specialized in modelling, texturing and shading. I worked on feature films, TV shows and commercials.

Currently I'm working at Brown Bag Films as Environment and Props Modeller for the first season of a new Animated TV series.
I have a 2d traditional animation background, and I worked in a lot of different positions from Storyboard to Comp, so I have experience in the whole pipeline.

I am passionate about painting and coloring and I'm really enthusiast about texturing and shading.

I'm always looking for new challenges and new ways to improve myself and to push forward my limits.

I have no problems with relocating and I'm available for a test

Cheers
