My name is Mickael Bonfill and i am a digital artist and an enthusiast developer. Since my childhood I spent days and nights on computers creating stuffs. During my freelance years as 3D artist, I learn by myself several aspects of software development. Firstly it was to build some production tools to use in Maya and 3ds Max. I also participated and contributed at beta version of Shotgun Software's Toolkit API. Since theses experiences, I used to contribute to several open-source projects on Github, like Node.js (Porting distribution for system using ARMv5te archithecture). My last project i'm currently working on is a cross-platform video-games emulators frontend called ScreenBox, as Lead Developer (C++, Qt). I'm always looking for opportunities to learn new programming languages and tips. So now I focus my career in software development department.
