About Me

I grew up in Drummondville, QC in Canada, with my three younger sisters. I was blessed at an early age with talents in drawing and general arts, but life directed my path in a different direction for a while.
I worked in different types of industries, including steel transformation, construction, and wood transformation where I became a Foreman. After the Company shut down because of the wood exchange crisis between Canada and United States in June 2001, I decided to join the Canadian Forces. I was called to start on September 11, 2001. I retired from the military in 2012 at the end of a 3-year work exchange between the US military and Canadian military. I decided to retire from that field to finally accomplish my dream of becoming a 3D artist. I moved in Winter Park with Lauren, my lovely wife, in April 2013, to start a Computer Animation degree at Full Sail University in June of that same year. I graduated March 6, 2015, with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Animation. I am specialized in Lighting & Look Development, but I can do everything else, from modeling to animating, and compositing, including roto tracking 2D- 3D and matte painting in Photoshop. 
I am currently attending Valencia College for an Associate of Science in Graphic Design. It has been a fantastic journey so far and obviously just the start of a greater one to come. 
I try hard every day to live by those two quotes: 
"Everything in life comes to you as a teacher. Pay attention..." 
"One day, you will be just a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one."
