I love what I do! I have a combination of strong creative/visual aesthetics and technical knowledge. Passionate about rigging and developing effective and simplified production pipelines, I always strive to give artists the best customer service possible, by implementing user-friendly workflows.

- BACKGROUND -
I was born and raised in France, in the outskirts of Paris. I am fluent in French, Vietnamese, English, Spanish, and decent in Portuguese.

- EDUCATION -
Computer Programming degree in France, and Animation in the US. 

- WORK -
I started my career as an Animator in 2003; my Programming skills helped me become a Technical Artist. I've worked in video games, commercials, and feature films in studios such as Walt Disney, Rhythm & Hues, Digital Domain, Electronic Arts, Activision, and 2K Sports. I have worked in teams of up to 12 riggers; and studios where I was the only Character and Pipeline TD. 

- NEW VENTURE IN 2017-
In 2017, I've decided to take a break from the cg industry, and started a new business, being a street vendor of French Crêpes. You can find more info here: www.TheLocalCreperie.com
 
- OTHER ACTIVITIES -
Big fan of Martials Arts, I practiced Taekwondo for 7 years and Capoeira for over 3 years. I stay active in Soccer, Volleyball, Table Tennis, Road biking and Scuba Diving.  I have been playing in few different Soccer and Volleyball leagues in the Bay area and currently in the Los Angeles area.

I believe it's important to give back to the community. I volunteered as a Soccer Coach, Event Organizer and Volunteer Coordinator in various Community Centers in the Bay Area,
