London, United Kingdom

I am a 3D artist and Visual Developer with a design background working in games, a Space exploration geek that didn't become an astronaut, and decided to create his own worlds, a polygon at a time.

Currently based in London working in the mobile games industry as an Artist specialized in Environment Design, at the moment am also developing my own visual narratives as a single Dev as a way of sharpening my skills for what comes next.
