My ultimate career goal would be to work at an animation studio, where creativity is leading and everyone strives for the best they can be.

When I went to high school it was the first time I came in contact with the modern ways of filmmaking. Instantly, I fell in love with the magic of characters like Elsa and Woody. The way they moved felt so original and real, that I wanted to explore how that was even possible. Since then my love grew for creating digital worlds of creativity and exploring new technical boundries. I’m very excited to start my professional journey!
