- To Learn more. - To be a great Texture/Shader Artist. - To be a great Concept Artist.

When I was asked what I wanted to do when I finished secondary education. I stated that all I know is that drawing and creating is something that brings me joy. Bringing joy to others makes me the most happiest too. So I combined service with my passion and resulted in this path today. I also grew up playing metal slug, world of warcraft and watching final fantasy. I just want to be part of a world I love and share it with other people so that it moves them in anyway,form and mood.
