I am a 3D artist, animator and data scientist passionate about neuroscience, mathematics of plants, biochemistry, and genetics. I am originally from Cosmodrome Baikonur, currently living in Vancouver, Canada.
I work in a variety of areas: modelling, rendering, compositing, animation, particles and dynamics. My speciality is interactive future user interface design and illustration.
Altogether I have amassed over 12 years of experience in the creative field producing commercials, branding, prototyping UI / UX, as well as biomedical, architectural and data visualizations.
I craft with Houdini, Cinema 4D, AE, Photoshop, Python and VEX.
Working with Zaha Hadid's team early in my career exposed me to a higher level of intentionality in design, it was an excellent starting point. However, my career has always revolved around visual communication and human development. For almost nine years I worked as a multimedia designer at Erickson International. Throughout that role I was immersed in the study of brain science and came away with an acute awareness of the responsibility designers have to craft visuals that forward the human collective.
I am a lover of all things designed with intention, precision, and care for the human nervous system. Right now I am on a mission to demystify the biomechanics of how the nervous system processes and stores information. I'm distilling neuroscience, acoustics and epigenetics, the study of how to alter our genes through perception, into a digestible guidebook and a grid system for designers, animators and filmmakers to craft better experiences.
I felt truly honored when my "Leonardo Da Vinci of Saturn" work was featured by Ash Thorp during his keynote at "The Future of Innovation, Technology and Creativity" conference in Toronto.
Recently, I won 1st prize in the best image category at SideFX Houdini "Marvellous Machines" contest. It felt amazing to be recognized by judges from Pixar, The Mill, Method, Animal Logic, and DNeg.
I am based in Vancouver, Canada 🇨🇦. Originally I am from Cosmodrome Baikonur, a russian spaceport located in Kazakhstan. The launch place of Sputnik, Buran and Yuri Gagarin's first journey into outer space.
