I am a CG-artist with a strong affinity for Animation and a solid background in rigging. I worked in Austria, Germany and London on Feature Productions with worldwide renowned companies like The Third Floor Inc and Scanline VFX. I graduated with a Master of Arts from the University of Applied Sciences Salzburg.

My aim is to bring characters to life and to grow as an artist. I’m passionate about everything animated and do my best to learn as much as I can about the medium.
