I am a CG creature artist, with a passion for motion, choreography and performance animation. My main 3D skills are previz, motion capture and motion editing. I am also proficient in character design and 3D modeling.

 

I was trained as an animator at the Royal Academy of Arts in Gent, where I had hands on experience with cell animation, object animation and live action.

 

I  have ten years working experience in the video games industry.  It has given me a feel for and an expertise in real time graphics and animation. It’s also given me the opportunity to work with high volume data and developing efficient animation pipelines.
