Self portrait from 2015
I love making games. From my experiences of AAA sized teams, to smaller live-ops teams, to doing games solo or with a few friends, I've learned that they all come with their own rewards and challenges.
I don't scare easily by the technical aspect of game development and depending on engine I'll easily be able to set up my animations. I'm skilled in rigging and skinning as well, even though I don't find that as exciting.
Other than animation I also enjoy doing 3D art & working with visual scripting in Unreal Engine. I dare say that I'm quite skilled in the Blueprinting of Unreal Engine, to the extent that I've done some smaller networked prototypes all in blueprint, for fun.
I'm experienced in working with teams of many different sizes, planning and delivering on time, as well as communicating and coordinating with the other crafts.
