About

An avid learner at heart, a gaming enthusiast, and now, a game developer (by choice)!

I delved into the world of digital arts early on, after pursuing a degree in multimedia arts. During my past career, I've been doing motion design to digital compositing - but I consider moving to Stockholm in 2019 to study 3D Art at FutureGames to be a sheer stroke of fine luck, and of course, countless sleepless nights.

Since joining FutureGames, life has just been about games - playing them, making them, and critically tearing them apart!

I'm uber-interested in real-time VFX - it is how the tiny particles, all come together, to make a game believable. To breathe life into otherwise static gameplay. And I feel making those minute particles act together in unison, is nothing short of artistic!

Currently, I am looking for an internship in a fun and creative environment where I can learn more and fuel my passion while at it!
