About me

Hi I`m Simon, a graduate from Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in 3D visualisation and animation. I have a passion for 3D art and experimenting with different modeling programs. Blender is my first choice in my arsenal of tools, but not my only one. I have long term experience working with Maya, some 3ds Max, getting the hang of Zbrush and most recently started exploring Substance Painter just to name a few.

I have a background in traditional graphic design and have hefty amount of experience in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.
 

I also do video post-processing and editing. After Effects I mostly use for compositing and other effects. Recently I’ve learned to use Vegas Pro for video editing, which I’ve found quite effective.
 

Linguistically I’m a native Swedish speaker and competent in Finnish and English. However I suffer from a severe dyslexia (ie reading disorder) and regardless of the language used, correct spelling is a challenge for me and my reading ability is slow paced.
 

Other than that, I'm a positive and occasionally very headstrong kind of guy. As I might've already hinted, I quite like like drawing and digital painting. My other interests entail all manner of gaming from video games to casually playing board games with friends. Reading comics and watching B-rate action movies are also close to my heart. I've recently picked up exercising again, which I have to keep up since I've now written it down here as a fact. Wish me luck!
