ABOUT ME.

A student of everything. I want to know how things work. Since the late 1980’s, as I saved the princess from Bowser’s cauldrons and before Wikipedia, I studied encyclopedias and became immersed and astonished with all the knowledge humanity had gathered in thousands of years. Armed with that knowledge, I loved drawing and painting, but I was terrible at it. Failed in competitions. Even in college I had teachers tell me that I wasn’t good enough to be doing it.

Those failures weren’t an obstacle. When I was introduced to my first computer in 1996, I found it to be the perfect tool: it satisfied my hunger to solve problems, and it allowed me to create anything I wanted to. It made sense. It did what I told it to do.

20 years later, I've made a career by using this beautiful machine to tell stories and communicate visually. And it allows me to express myself.

Functionality. Quality. Delivery.

The neusenz approach.

My work ethic is simple: functionality (purpose), quality (composition, color, lighting) and delivery (the message). It consumes me, I give it my alI. I apply it to everything I do. From work, to my everyday interactions with everything and everyone.  A calculated form of living, which helps me transmit all the feelings I’m unable to express to the ones I care about and strangers, but I can, through my works.
