  • When Rodrigo joined our team, he instantly elevated our game. His work is clean and high quality, but he also was a huge contributor to our company culture. He takes feedback amazingly well; he's kind, patient, and always happy to help someone through a problem. Artistically, he came up with a lot of great solutions for problems that we encountered, and he has a lot of flexibility beyond 3D modeling skills.

  • Having worked with Rodrigo for over two years, he brings a certain infectious positive energy. Not only is he talented and eager to assist anyone on the team from mentorship to a helping hand. It's his positivity that is one of his strongest attributes. He is a great member of any team and a friend to anyone in need. His eagerness to dive into any program or problem presented to him can also not be understated. Rodrigo fully commits himself to whatever task is presented, gains a certain mastery, and then assists in training those around him.
