Technical / Developer

Originally from Chengdu, China, Shouyu grew up wanting to be a rockstar. Since his early days, he loved comic books, action figures, and being the base guitarist for a punk band for several years. After graduating from high school, Shouyu challenged himself to explore a completely new field of studies for his undergrad in a completely new country. He graduated with a BFA degree in Computer Science from the University of New Mexico in The United States Of America.  After mastering the art of coding, Shouyu came back to his home country and decided to explore the world of digital media as he still loved art, comic books and his action figure collection from his childhood days. He spent a year teaching himself 3D design softwares like Unity and Zbrush, and finally landed at CDM for his Master’s in Digital Media. He aims to be a Technical Artist in a gaming company and eventually even become a Game Producer one day.  These days, you can find Shouyu playing games and 3D printing action figures to add to his collection. Maybe he’ll design and 3D print your favorite action figure if you just ask him? :)
