I’m a 3D animator from São Paulo, Brazil.
I currently work for Wildlife Studios as a 3D Animator in the Marketing department. I use mainly Maya and After Effects for animating, Zbrush for modeling, V-ray or Arnold for render and Nuke for composition.
My career began in 2007 when I enrolled for a bachelor’s degree in design at the Mackenzie Presbyterian University. During the course, I tried my hand at various art forms and discovered my interest in digital media. Three years later, I put my degree on hold to spend four months in Vancouver, Canada, where I took VanArt’s 3D Summer Intensive Course. Back in Brazil, I began working as an art director at an ad agency, where I refined my creative skills. Upon completing my bachelor’s degree, I became a freelance motion designer while continuing my education with Animation Mentor’s character animation program.
Shortly after, I was hired as a 3D modeler at Big Studios where I developed my skills in all areas of the production pipeline, from modeling through to compositing. I worked there until 2018 having my last role as a 3D Animator Supervisor and collecting over four years of experience in the advertising industry.
I aim to become the best animator I can be, improving my skills with every new project.
When I’m off work, I enjoy watching movies, football (I’m a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan) and playing the drums.
