Germany | Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg
At the age of 12 I got in contact with 3DsMax and started to play around with it on my own. I was fascinated by the idea that I could build anything I wanted in the computer. Back then I thought I was goingt to be an architect. But with the time I was more and more fascinated with Animation, storytelling and computergenerated images. After college I started to study information technology but quickly switched to study Animation at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg.
United States | Ringling College of Art and Design
I've been an artist since I could hold a pencil and a programmer since elementary school. I made many small games over the years but never realized game development was a viable career option until late high school. Once I started learning the professional pipeline, I was hooked. There's no other field that so perfectly encompasses everything I'm passionate about in my life, and I'm excited to take my first steps into the industry.
United Kingdom | Escape Studios
Games have always been a great passion of mine, I attended a graphic design school in Italy, I knew I wanted to continue my studies and go to a University, so I decided to try and combine my passion of Video Games and Design.
Malaysia | The One Academy
My hobby is drawing ever since I was small. From my hobby it became an interest of mine to commit my life to. From there on I want to work somewhere that I like and proud of.
