Ricardo Merchan

Ricardo started his career in the Entertainment industry while he was studying Computer Science and Systems Engineering. Here he was captivated by digital images and computer graphics, and made them the focus of his thesis that he later presented in the poster competition at Siggraph in 2006. While he was at school he also had the opportunity to experience other areas of entertainment working at amusements parks such as Six Flags and Volente Beach.

Upon graduating, he worked for a few years as a consultant in the Oracle Partner Network where he improved his skills in teamwork and communication.

Later, he decided to follow his dreams, and to do so, he went to Carnegie Mellon University where he is currently pursuing a Master in Entertainment Technology. Following graduation, he hopes to have fun creating entertainment experiences using state of the art and technology to its fullest potential.
