Share your student and professional background to get to your position at Mikros Animation!
Following my childhood passion, I learned Photography and Graphic Design and joined an advertisement agency as a Graphic Designer early in my career. Later I trained in 3D Animation because of my deep desire to enter the Animation industry. I worked as a Character Animator and Animation Team Lead for seven years before joining Mikros Animation.
My nine-year tenure in the Animation department was very enriching in terms of working with great talents on successful shows. I pursued my interest in the technical pipeline and got trained in pipeline development. I was promoted to Pipeline Supervisor and then to CG Supervisor. In this 13-year-long association, this organization has always nurtured my skills and provided me with a great platform for my aspirations.
Who or what inspires you?

The “Eureka Award” presented to me in 2022 provided a great boost to my morale and creativity.
What would be your superpower?
Time travel, so I can go back and forth to fix the troubles I make every day!
