My Passion

I have been very fortunate to experience many aspects of the creative industry from Game design, Photography, Educational, Commercial to E-Learning. Each opportunity has helped me grow creatively and I have always relished being part of a team. I have been very lucky to lead some brilliant people and help them to realise their own potential.

My most recent endeavour has led me to Educational institutes, starting with university students and ensuring they have the best skill set to go into their chosen industry with confidence. I run summer courses teaching Autodesk Maya and 3D Animation for beginners, whose numbers I have doubled since I started.

Proud to say I have received a 1st Class BA Honours degree specialising in 3D Character Animation. My previous Education lies in Fine Art, Photography and Graphics Design.

I am proficient in a wide range of programs as well as Maya and After Effects. These would include; Autodesk 3DS Max, Mudbox, Adobe Suite, zBrush, CelAction and TVPaint. It is very beneficial to be flexible and adapt my workflow to suit the projects needs.

Currently outside of my career I write/illustrate children’s books and thoroughly enjoy oil painting.

Below are those who inspire me:
Animators: Jan Svankmajer, Brothers Quay, Tex Avery, Richard Williams.
Concept artist: Peter Mckinstry, Dan Milligan, Joachim Barrum, Michael Kutsche, Peter Konig
Artists: Francis Bacon, Edvard Munch, Joel-Peter Witkins, Hieronymous Bosch,
Other:  Jim Murray, Scott Radke, Dev’art Kungfoolai.
