Skills

I am truly passionate in creating the best possible CG content and over the years I’ve strengthen my skills in hard surface, environment and character modelling  (including faceshapes) as well as on various asset centric disciplines (textures, lookdev  and lighting) which added a generalist background to  my profil.
I’m really keen on solving technical problems and developping new approaches and workflows with CG Sups and Pipeline in order to save time and keep flexibility in a production
environment.
I also have good communication skills which I have used on a daily basis  in the past few years as a Lead Modeller. It really helped me to support and to lead my team even during crush time as well as being a bridge between Production and Modelling Department.
