I have been here since 2009 and the first project I worked on here as and FX artist was on Back at the Barnyard.
- Share your student and professional background to get to your position at Mikros Animation!
Since my childhood, I was interested in drawing and painting, but I pursued engineering professionally. I had the same work every day and nothing new to do, I was then inclined to convert my hobby into a profession, and that’s how I got into this creative world.
Having been a part of so many successful shows and surrounded by so much talent helped me grow day by day and made me what I am today.

I am a foodie and like eating quite a variety of food. I feel our Mr. Panda (Po from Kung Fu Panda) suits me well.

I consider completing tasks on time according to the project expectations as a good achievement. I have always made sure to stick to the schedule, maintain a good team environment and make sure to deliver quality output within the expected deadline.
- What would be your superpower?
Travelling to anywhere in the blink of an eye – teleportation.
- What advice would you give to your younger self?
Take the time to explore your interests, develop new skills, and continue your education. Knowledge and personal development can open doors and create opportunities in the future. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes or facing setbacks. Failure is a natural part of life, and it can be a powerful teacher. Learn from your mistakes and use them as stepping stones to future success.
