About me

I'm holding an industry engineer degree in computer networks and telecommunications, but at the moment I'm studing for my Master in Computer Science at the University of Luxembourg.

I speak Luxembourg, German, French and English. I'm also learning Croatian in evening class.

I've been doing digital graphics for the past 6 years since I discovered a free trial of Bryce 4 in a magazine. Since then, I was taken by the possiblilities of 3d art. In 2002 I got a copy of Poser 4 and soon later I updated to Version 5. Soon after my first experiences with a 3D software, I was bored of using the pre-defined objects in Poser and I wanted to create my own library, so I was looking for a 'real' 3D application. After trying out 3dsmax and lightwave I got a trial version of Maxon's Cinema 4D and was enthusiastic by the simple but yet versatile user interface.

I don't have any qualification in art or whatsoever releated to art. I'm doing this just for fun in my spare time.

Furthermore, I like going to the cinema, listening to all kind of music and above all, hanging around with friends.
