I am a Digital Compositor with a passion for Visual Effects. I have experience in many different projects, from being a roto-monkey to Head of VFX, and I'm always looking for new and interesting ways to tackle problems. I love sharing my knowledge, and I come from Austria, isn't that weird? You can even follow me on Twitter if you're really bored.
