solo_thumb2Currently I reside in the US, but I hail from a small land locked Paradise tucked away in the interior of the East African Coast – the area known as ZANJ land during colonial times. The name is Uganda. I grew up on the outskirts of the capital city – Kampala, on the slopes of a hill called Mutundwe. My early childhood was in the country side – Masaka, far from the rumbles of the city traffic.

While in Uganda, I worked for 3 companies. Infosat – as a website developer and artist, Photo Magic – as a photo processor and photographer and C&MS – as an artist and web development instructor. After graduating from secondary school – A Level, I came to the US in 1996 to complete my degree in Art. I graduated in the Spring of 1999. I attended Ohio Valley University, Montgomery College and George Mason University. I majored in Art and Visual Technology with an Emphasis on 3D Environment Design and modeling, Character Modeling and Animation, Vehicle Modeling and Simulation.

I enjoy my work tremendously and I am forever grateful to God for blessing me with a gift I can share with the rest of the world.

Until recently, I had been working as a 3D artist/Animator for CAMBER. My main focus is Character modeling and animation, buildings and environment creation, plus mechanical modeling.

Currently I am working full time as an Independent film director and 3D Artist/Visual Effects Artist. I am also working as a 3D Consultant in the areas of Concept Design, Architectural Visualisation, 3D Modeling and Animation, Matte Painting, Illustration and Storyboarding.
