When a kid, I dreamt of being a film director. I wanted to create films with my own stories. I liked very much to draw scenes and characters. When I grew up, I grew interest on the fever of that time: videogames. So I enrolled on a Computer Science graduation.

But all the Math, programming and technical part of creating games was not appealing to me at all. It was the creative and artistic part that got me into it. And then, I discovered Animation: the beauty of moving things and creating the illusion of life.

After graduating, I started looking for a job as 3D animator. But I couldn’t find companies with vacancy for that position in my city. I studied a lot about animation and 3D softwares. I was growing as an animator, but couldn’t pay my bills.

So I decided to work on my own, as a freelancer, by making contact with the clients myself and partnering with other professionals like me to work on our productions.

Now I can work on what I love to do. My old child self became happy again.
