I aim to become a VFX animator and a Rigger for TV and films. My goals is to continue the magic on screens for the future generation.

I watched all the “Faceoff” when I was young, and since then I’ve always felt like I need to do something creative in the future, especially behind the scene for movies and TV. When I was 15, I was fortunate to visit Weta-Cave on a family trip to NewZealand. When I watched their studio reel, just before we toured the workshop, I cried. I was so emotional that I knew I had found my future: to be a visual effect artist.
