In 1993, at the age of 11, I was captivated by a teaser for a 3D movie called 'The Raptoms' from the Belgian animation studio 'Imagination in motion'. The experience ignited a passion within me that has driven me to become a 3D artist. Despite the film never making it to the big screen, my determination remained strong. Although there were no digital arts schools in Belgium at that time, I pursued my love for 3D and taught myself everything I could about it while attending a traditional press and graphic education, earning a master's degree in advertising design.
My journey as a freelance designer started in 2005, where I worked on a wide range of projects including programming 2D computer games, graphic design, 3D visuals, and motion graphics. But in 2011, my life took a major turn when I was hired by Studio 100, a Belgian media company. My main responsibility was to create 3D stereoscopic animation for the backdrops of a musical, which pushed me to my limits, but I learned a lot in a short period of time, and my network began to expand as I met others who shared my passion.
It wasn't long before Tomorrowland approached me to help them design their stages, and as first in-house 3D artist this opportunity proved to be a defining moment in my career. After experiencing the magic of the festival, I knew that I had found my true calling. Today, I work in a team of 23 talented designers at Tomorrowland, and together, we strive to create mind-blowing 3D designs that inspire awe in all who see them.
I am driven by my passion for creating exceptional designs and inspired by those who share my love for the craft. It brings me immense joy to help others bring their visions to life and turn their dreams into art. If you need assistance with your design projects, I am here to help. For me, this isn't just a job, it's a passion that fuels my desire to create amazing designs every single day.
Let's celebrate the pursuit of dreams and make them a reality together!
