Hi, I am Christian Ronchi. I was born in Milan, Italy, 6th May 1978.

In 1996 I graduated from Brera school of Arts after which I enrolled at the Academy of Belle Arti in the Faculty of Painting, in addition I also obtained a professional certificate for Computer Graphics through the Enaip institute in Milan.
I spent the first couple of years of my career as a freelance Artist making commercials for various companies, until 2001 when I joined Ubisoft Studios in Milan where I have worked since December 2014. Currently I’m working at Forge Reply as Head of the 3D department.

In my career I have been involved in a number of projects, filling a wide array of functions, working with and creating: Models, Animation, Lighting, Rendering, Composition & Visual Effects for both Real-Time and Cinematics.

In June 2014 I collaborated with other game industry experts in the production of Game Development Tool Essentials, a book dedicated to game development.
