I am a CG-artist who prefers 3D-Animation and rigging. I recently graduated with a Master of Arts from the University of Applied Sciences Salzburg, MultiMediaArt. I am currently available.

My Goal: To access an animation position at an enthralling studio that will enable me to bring characters to life and to grow as an artist. I have a good eye for detail and research, I’m passionate about everything animated and I aim to learn as much as I can about the medium.

I can offer letters of recommendation. Ask me about them while contacting me.
