I had my first computer and internet in 2003, quickly I understood that I was  interested in the creation of digital contents .I started to create some website in 2004, I discovered Dreamveawer, Photoshop  and I learned PHP and HTML .
In 2008, I started to learn Blender. It was the first step of my journey into the 3D world. It’s in 2009 that I entered at Supinfogame in a preparatory 2 years course in Game Design and Management. In April 2009, I chose Autodesk Maya and Pixologic Zbrush as my weapon of choice ! After 2 years at Supinfogame, I was introduced to many softwares and techniques such as: Adobe Flash, Adobe Illustrator, Autodesk 3DSMAX, Game concept writing, team management, Actionscript, basics in sound design, basics in ergonomics and so on …
After two years of game design, I realized that I didn’t want to became  a Game Designer, I was more interested in computer graphics .That’s why, I’m currently preparing a Master in Game Art and Management at Supinfogame.

During the year 2012, I had the opportunity to try the work of technical artist at school and during my summer  internship, I really loved  it, I think that I found what I want do for my future career.
