Biography

I was raised in a gaming family playing games like Ocarina of Time and Starcraft from the age of three years old, so gaming has always been a part of my life. When I was 11 I found blender and my infatuation with 3D modeling started, 9 years later i’ve improved to a professional level and am stilling enjoying it. After high school I started pursuing (and am still pursuing) a degree in the art and design of games and playable media at the University of California Santa Cruz.
