i've studied classical animation as well as 3d, my main medium is 3d since my drawing skills never been quite good :) .
I´m a 36 years old 3d artist and started studying and working with CG back in 1995 while I was studying
architecture at UFMG, Brazil.
By 1995 I started using Adobe Photoshop and Autodessys FormZ. In 1996 I was bitten by the 3dsmax bug which was in its first version.
Since then, I use the combination of 3dsmax/Photoshop/Tons of plugins for all my architectural illustrations and animations.

I'm an architect from Spain and architectural visualization enthusiast. I am starting a new project about image and architecture called impresiones [de arquitectura]. I'll present the new web next week!
I was raised on a classic healthy combination of science, music, arts and true love.
Over the years, this path lead me to graduate the experimental IASA - Israel Art and Science Academy, and go on to study Architecture at the Technion - Israel Technical Institute, where I first got the chance to try computer aided design applications and got addicted. Shortly after, I started working as a 3D Artist in the Israeli visual industry, and dedicated most of my school work to digital media and computerized 3D solutions.
It was therefore obvious when I chose to do my final project in the evolving field of Digital Architecture.
