Note: Due to well documented issues of sexism and game workers not being heard/paid equally (CEO paid one thousand times more than QA) , I want to stand with fellow workers and challenge the structure of the firm, support the creation of an international union of artist cooperatives. To this end, I am reserving the right to ignore/delete any incoming mail which is not related to: a) The formation of a worker cooperative, unions or b) NVDA strategies to fully dismantle the plastic and fossil fuel industry by 2030 (ex: reversing state capture).

I'm a Concept Artist from France currently working in Los Angeles. I have six years of work experience in Games, Animation and Film. My experience covers a spectrum ranging from worldbuilding and pre-production to hands-on work in CG animation pipelines.
I've started a multimedia anthology work about ecology titled "Ecocide Inc.", it's inspired by the worldwide resistance against fossil fuel corruption and pollution.
