Hi, I am


I am a programmer.

about me

What I do


I love learning new things like algorithms, tools and programming languages, playing with them and using them to overcome new challenges.


I’m not a 3d artist but I know how to model, rig and animate in 3D.


A game mechanic doesn’t need just bug-free code but above all a good game design as its root. Taking care of the user experience is part of the job.


I’m used to working in international contests and with people with a completely different background than mine such as Graphic Designers, Musicians, Visual Artists, Dancers, Martial Artists.
