12 years experience in using '3d Studio Max'.

'Work in Progress' images that show meshes in various stages of development could be provided on request).

Summary

My name is Petar Posavec.

I am 31 years old, Caucasian, originally from Zagreb.

I am currently employed as an office administrator for a company known as SOIH (situated in Zagreb), but looking to expand my horizons.

My present duties involve translation of various documentation from English to Croatian and vice versa, as well as data input, personal assistant duties and some graphic design.

I am versatile when it comes to jobs and not terribly picky, as well as ready/willing to learn new things and capable of working as part of a team or on my own.

Seeking new job opportunities in EU countries where English is a predominant language requirement, but I am open to other countries and learning new languages if required.
