It was back when I was in middle school. My cousin was working in Blender when I was at his house one day. It was so amazing to me at the time, I immediately got it installed on my parents' computer and started learning it. My cousin even made tutorials for me to start off with. What a guy. Ever since then, I have grown more and more passionate about 3D Design in general.

I was always interested in the arts, but took a detour in high school to go for a field in the sciences instead. During this time I was in a two year science program that consisted of only academics and it was during this time that I realized how much I loved exploring my creative side and making works of art. I dropped all my science classes in grade 12 to work towards making a portfolio for Emily Carr University of Art & Design and was thankfully accepted.
