I started studying Graphic Design and Visual Communicaion in the year 2001 - focus on advertising and publicity.
I worked in a few printing companies, and design agencies.
Eventually I developed skills as digital illustrator, mostly in vector format. My knowledges in freehand drawing were very helpful.
My next step was to jump into 2D/3D animation for TV and Internet wich leaded me to Visual effects and compositing, and this is what I currently do the most.
I also have basic website design knowledges.
