" Before we found Ovi, we had a very difficult time locating a CG artist who had both technical abilities as well as a strong aesthetic sensibility. Ovi holds the perfect combination. He has a refined artistic style and an ability to push the limits with CGI explorations. He also works very well with our creatives. Ovi's opinion is highly regarded, as our team trusts both his technical and creative judgement. He is a dedicated and hard worker, who I would gladly recommend to any agency or design group looking for a CG artist. "

"Ovi is an excellent 3d generalist that excels in photo-realistic imagery. It was an enormous benefit to have on board an expert lighting artist, versatile enough to tackle any aspect of cgi production. He quickly became the 'goto' guy for troubleshooting technical and logistical issues. Ovi is exceptionally professional and a pleasure to work with."

− Don Libby, eVox Productions

"Ovi is the swiss-army-knife of 3D. He has proven himself as a stellar texture artist and lighter, but has a surprisingly wide skill-set which includes rigging and animation. Ovi thrives when faced with new challenges and enjoys problem solving for the team. The best part is that he is incredibly humble and a pleasure to work with, something not often found with 3D rock stars!"
