About me

I am a real time visual effects artist based in Vilnius, Lithuania. I create special effects (magic spells, fires, tornadoes, portals, explosions, muzzles, water, etc.) for video games and really any visual project that requires real-time special effects.

I mainly work with the Unity engine since I've been working for Unity Technologies for quite a while now. Over the years I've grown with Unity where I gained different skills by being in different roles. I was a tester, then a leader of a huuuge and lovely team, and now currently, I am a content curator where I can balance my work with my passion. I have seen thousands of assets and projects and have trained my eyes and wits to know what is quality content. 

 

I finished studies of Multimedia and Computer design in 2020, where I gained my IT bachelor's diploma. I am very well acquainted with 3D modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, digital painting, and the process of making video games, movies, and short films.
