Zaren May was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. Starting at a young age, Zaren was always fascinated by the world of video games and cartoons, the desire to create worlds of his own a powerful inspiration. Zaren was given the privilege of attending a school that only continued to nurture his love of the 3D world, where he was actually able to make characters come to life and give environments life through textures. The acceptance letter to the CU Denver 3D program was the greatest moment of his life, as he was able to finally pursue his dream of creating beautiful, impactful worlds and stories like the ones in the games, cartoons, and films that has inspired him. His dream, after graduation, is to work as a generalist with a focus on texturing and animation.
