I'm originally from Montreal, Quebec in Canada, now living in Dallas TX.
My academic background is Design and Architecture, but I was always interested in new technologies and computers, I was lucky enough to learn and evolve at the same time that 3D CAD software were emerging back in the early 90's.
When computers and architecture met I was there ready to experiment being one of the first student to create 3D renderings.
I graduated from Quebec University in Montreal in 1994. I had found my passion in 3D visualization, a perfect balance between creativity and technology.
From that point on, I've basically touched all aspect of computer generated imagery, from prints, graphic design, architectural visualization, engineering, 3D printing, broadcast media and feature films.
My career evolved into a more specific field; look development - lighting and rendering...where I've always enjoy the challenge of applying photography principles to computer art.
Over time I've put on many hats, building and leading teams to supervising and mentoring others, but one thing stands out overtime, I'm a Designer at heart and passionate at bringing ideas to life.
