I am a designer with a keen interest for the digital. I especially enjoy modeling in Rhino and seeing the results through rendering using renders like VRay and Maxwell then post processing in Photoshop. I also enjoy the analog methods such as hand-sketching, drawing, and hand-crafting.

I am a determined and dedicated person that when presented with a task, I persist and persevere to the end.
