My name is fernando and my passion lays on 3d animation, traditional Art and entrepeunership.
i attended school as a traditional Art major and then moved to 3d animation and graduated with a 3d animation major with a minor in Art.
I'm very proud of my work experience accomplisments thus far. i however, enjoy finding new ways to challenge my skills and myself.
I have a full time job as a Media Supervisor but i duel with entrepeneuship outside of work to keep my overactive mind at bay.
