About me

I am a passionate creative, optimistic about the way design can shape the future, and always on the quest to experiment with new technologies. I know that the best results always come from working in collaborative environment, with people from different backgrounds and disciplines. I am at my most comfortable where different creative disciplines such as graphic design, UX, code and motion meet: It’s there where I can push for story-led projects that make the most of different media (video, photographic and interactive). I have a keen eye for detail and I am con dent in managing teams and planning efficient workflows in order to deliver on time and on budget, often exceeding client expectations. Like many people in this field I dabble in photography, I love cinema and videogames and I am an avid runner and a beginner climber. Specialties: Motion Design, including 2d and 3d animation and compositing. Solid understanding of 3d modelling, animation and rendering. Competent in 3d rigging. Good experience with Autodesk Maya, Cinema 4d, and V-ray renderer. Experienced with Nuke and After Effects for 3d compositing and animation. I'm also compentent in: Graphic Design, Interfaces, Layout, Typography, Information Architecture and usability and rich media design.Experienced in HTML and CSS and Object Oriented Actionscript 2 and 3
