Originally from Portugal, with a Graphic Design background from Hyper Island School in Sweden. I am a Designer/Director that uses 3D as the main tool for communicating and bringing ideas to life whilst attempting to strike a balance between being technical and artistic at the same time. Working in teams or by myself I have drive and love pushing the envelope as far as I can with sometimes complex ideas.
I have had the pleasure to work with several major studios in NY for the last 6 years on a multitude of projects on different roles such as Art director, Technical director, designer, animator, 3D generalist and Lighter. I enjoy dividing my time between commercial projects and personal art projects that keep the flame burning. I am a creative thinker inspired by all things visual.
Artistically if you notice on my body of work, I can create Photo-real and Stylized imagery. Technically my work was done with several tools, but mainly I use Maya and 3DsMax. I can also create image based lighting from scratch on location and have used Photoshop, After Effects and Nuke for compositing the final images.
I am currently Freelance and always looking for opportunities to join forces.
