Sergio M. Ribeiro

Designer // Developer // Musician

Welcome to My Website

In some way shape or form I have been intrigued by art since my early teen years and professionally involved for over 10 years. This passion traverses a few different platforms of the design world. From traditional pencil on paper, to computer illustration and design, to 3D modeling and design, to web programming.

My passion for the arts expand beyond the aforementioned and also into the art of music. In particular, music strongly rooted around the electric guitar. I have been a musician just as long as I have been involved in art through writing, recording, and performing original music for nearly 20 years.

As I grow and expand my repertoire, I’ve come to realize that no matter the medium or platform, I just have a deep desire to create and push to innovate.

Passion to Create!
