30 years experience in Digital Graphic Design with excellent knowledge of Visual FX software in the Game and Film industry.

Having lived in different European countries and have the ability to communicate with employers using modern technology (Wacom Cintiq 24HD) providing instant design to a “never seen before level”. The quality of my completed work does not depend on where my employer’s company is located and I have the ability to communicate fluently in English, Russian, Polish and Ukrainian. Being a team player who is efficient, adaptable and dead line driven with strong initiative and personal drive I would be a valuable asset to your company.
