ABOUT

Visual art and music have always been inseparable in my world. Visual art was the main form of expression and music is what kept a scattered mind focused. Naturally, this led me to the music and media art industry. Creating visuals for music was the gateway to learning more and more about animation, VFX, and live content design. I am currently focusing on learning more on VFX techniques while working on personal projects.

Studios, artists and agencies I've worked with include:
