Work in the world of computer graphics, developing tools and techniques to improve the workflow of all production. Help my colleagues to work better, faster and painlessly through solutions in the production process. Always learn more and create all the time. Being constantly involved with new technologies, techniques and people who challenge me to be the best developer I can be.
I�m a developer with 12 years of experience on general development field. Last 8 years focused entirely to 3D. Along with my technical side I also developed a strong artistic sense and now my work is aimed to develop tools and techniques, solve problems and remove steps in a 3D production. So artists can focus on what they really need and do their jobs better and faster. I also have experience in planning and renderfarms setup, pipeline design, system configuration and database. I am a person who lives to create and invent, always looking for new challenges!
