I'm part of the Creative Team at SparkWare Technologies - part of 888 Holdings Company (888) one of the world’s most popular online gaming entertainment and solutions providers. I specialize in creating 2D graphics and animation(including characters design, backgrounds and icons, and more). My passion for graphics and art in general can be traced back to my pre-professional days. Responsibilities - Creating Casino Games(PC and Mobile). My attributions are to create assets for casual games, creating characters, user interfaces, icons, and backgrounds, including basics animation. The professional team here arranged personal development courses and I had the chance to learn more about Adobe After Effects, Spine, and some basics 3D Max.

Mar 2011 – Apr 2015
Lead Graphic Artist
Responsibilities - This was probably my first real experience with the gaming industry and game design. In these almost 4 years I spent at Witch Hut, I learned a lot about game design, drawing, balancing, and about the process of creating a user-friendly product. My responsibilities were creating game art from scratch, including graphic assets, animations, UI, characters, basics animations, and background art. (HTML games for children (makeovers, cooking games, dress up games, etc)). As Lead Graphic Artist, I also had the attribution to give advice and some artistic direction to the other graphic artists, which I consider a very useful experience, offering me the chance to learn something new about management in a small team as Witch Hut.
