Aero 3D Studios was established as the result of pursuing my dreams and doing that which I love the most, creating the wonders and emotions that can only be done through the art of 3D visualizations.
I am a Master of Science in Aerospace engineering, graduated from the University Of Technology in Delft. It is during those studies that I came in touch with the art of 3D visualizations through a minor called Imagination, which was taught by the IT department of the faculty of Architecture . In this minor the basics of making a 3D animation were taught. Through my enthusiasm, motivation and talent in developing myself in the art of 3D I was offered a job at the end of the minor by the organizers themselves as a student assistant at the IT department of the faculty of Architecture. Through my motivation I continuously progressed my knowledge about creating 3D art in my spare time next to my work and daily studies, and before I knew it I was teaching my own Bachelor and Master classes at the TU Delft as well as organizing the same minor that once triggered me to start developing in the art of 3D.

When the curriculum and funding in the Architecture IT department started to shift I decided to move on and commit full time to graduating from my Aerospace engineering studies. After this I started working as an engineer for Shell where I unfortunately lost sight of my passion for 3D art. But after working 4 years without using the full potential of my creative mind and passion, I knew that this was never going to work out. I could no longer deny that I had to again start pursuing that which I loved doing the most, which is creating 3D artwork.
