I was born in the year 1980. '80s cartoon like Thundercats, Transformers, Disney Animated Film influenced me so much. My most important inspiration came from Glen Keane, Disney Animated Feature - Tarzan. Without this i won't become an animator.

Since then, i have immersed myself almost 10 years in the animation industry. Animating is my strength. I constantly challenge myself to achieve something more and I'm always ready to solve any difficult challenges that come my way. Most importantly i am deeply passionate towards animation.

Objective

I am a passionate Character Animator / CG Generalist. I’ve been involved in CG industry for almost 10 years since I graduated from Diploma in Digital Animation. I’ve work and experienced both Animation Series and Broadcast Television.

My objective is to obtain employment in the industry of ANIMATED FEATURE FILMS and more specifically in the animating part of a production.

I’ve been specialized in key framing animation where I find myself most confidently performing. I am also constantly participating in the compositing and editing stage of a movie production, I believe this is another strength of mine.

I am currently base in CG education industry in Malaysia. I am working as an animation course lead who oversees animation course development. I’ve gained the valuable experience when guiding junior in producing animation. Working as an educator, I’ve learnt the importance of classroom and production management; therefore I have a full set of effective coaching material for junior animator.

I never stop to develop my animation skills through joining online animation competition. I’ve even enrolled myself to the Animation Mentor Online School to enhance my knowledge in Animal & Creature Animation.
