What was your "this is what I want to do as a career" moment?

The first time I made a 3D model and visualization in 3ds Max.

 

What was your first job in the 3D industry? How did you like it?

My first job was working on an indie game project with a great team of people and 3D enthusiasts. We worked on a horror survival game. It was great seeing 3D models I made come to life in a game environment.

 

What inspires your work?

Since I work in the arch viz industry, I tend to find inspiration in photography, architecture, nature etc.

What do you love about your job?

Almost everything, but mainly being able communicate complex ideas and concepts in renderings.

 

What's your least favorite part about your job?

My least favorite part is UVW Unwrapping. The process has become easier over time, but it can be a bit boring. I can’t stress the importance of properly unwrapping models enough though.

  

What project have you worked on that you are most proud of?

That would be a project I did for an online competition a few years ago called Safe Haven. I’ve come a long way since then, but I was proud of coming up with a concept and realizing it.

 

What is the most valuable advice you've received in your career? 

To spend some time experimenting in different 3D fields. That way you can see what suits you the most and then focus on it almost completely. By taking that advice, I learned that I preferred hard surface modeling and architectural visualization.

What projects are you working on next?

At the moment, I am completely occupied with creating visualizations for work. We put a strong focus on realism, so it requires a lot of dedication and attention to detail!
