/biography

I was born in Hungary, 1981

Grew up in London, UK until 1987. Moved to Ottawa in 1990 where I finished elementary school. Enrolled in University of Pretoria in South Africa in 2000 but cut my studies short. Currently living in Dubai since 2007.

 

I am driven by passion for 3d since I was 13 years old, since the film Jurassic Park kickstarted me into the world of 3D -never made a 3d dinosaur since -

Im keen on detail, realism and I have a drive for excellence. I would like to make a career in the VFX industry or game industry and put my 15 years plus modeling experience to use and progress with learning new things and broaden my scope of work into film and games. 

 

So far I have worked in numerous fields throughout my 16 year career but my main speciality is 3D modeling, shading, lighting, rendering. 

 

I have worked at 3D Brigade, one of the leading outsourcing companies in Europe as a 3D artist, making low poly game art and textures. 

Since I moved to Dubai in 2007 I have worked in architecture for numerous years at companies such as Macina ME, Real Image, ADCC Design Consultants and ZainBoga Architecture.

I also have years of experience as a 3D generalist in VFX and post production at companies such as The Chimney Pot in Dubai, Rolling Thunder, Optix VFX, Muddville and Spitfire.
