When I was young I was fascinated by "Legend of Zelda". So I played every "Zelda" game and this leads me to the idea of working in the video game industry, to create iconic characters like the heroes of my childhood. I began to draw characters on my own, then after high school, I began to learn 3D modeling in a faculty with a great passion for character art. And then here we are...

Years ago I fell in love with image making. Inspired by older films and photography, I started paying attention to Lighting , props and the environments. It has been my instinct that has lead me to creating in 3D. I have years of experience in Photography , set building and prop making. It felt only natural to bring my skills into the 3D world.

I always had questions about how games are made, especially those beautiful environments. A friend of mine told me that his brother works in games. And that was it, the start of my dream and journey into the entertainment industry. I'm a self-taught artist who started 3d as a hobby and now looking to make it my lifetime career.

I'm one of those people who more or less always knew they wanted to work in creative media and entertainment since they could hold a pencil. What kid doesn't want to make their own comic, animation, or game? For better or worse, that kid in me has never changed his mind.

4 years ago in 2017, I discovered tutorials online from Feng Zhu, a digital concept artist. Fascinated by him I started to learn concept art and digital painting, mostly from online sources. Then in 2019, I decided to visit a 3D school in cologne, Pixl Visn Media Arts Academy, mainly because I wanted to understand the basics of 3D and the mindset of a 3D artist, to become an even better and more efficient concept artist. I fell in love with 3D and now I want to work as a 3D artist.
