Look Development, Lighting, Compositing
Driven by my passion for storytelling, I left my country to expand my skills and open myself to new cultures. After getting my education at Gnomon, my journey to further my abilities has landed me at DreamWorks Animation TV, where I have spent time refining my craft and learning about a wide variety of industry-standard workflows in a fast-paced production environment. My love for CG animation lies in Look Development, Lighting, and Compositing where artistic and technical skills are keys in bringing stories to life.
