About

I am an engineer in love with the intersection of technology and entertainment.

My name is Pol Jeremias and I am originally from Barcelona. Today, I live (and love) in San Francisco.

I graduated from University of Southern California with a Master’s in Computer Science and I have sometimes written articles and presented at conferences. I was part of the team working on Star Wars 1313 and The Force Unleashed 2 at LucasArts, after that, I spent two years working on a gaming startup, and currently, I am part of the GPU team at Pixar Animation Studios where I worked on Finding Dory, Cars 3, Coco and more recently on Hydra (our real-time renderer).

I love all things related to technology, entertainment and human behavior. I spent my nights and weekends working on Beautypi and Shadertoy. When I am not coding you will find me running, reading or watching movies.
