About Me

As a professional artist for over 20 years I've worked on a variety of different and exciting projects. I have worked for both small and large companies. I have also run my own production company for the past 12 years. Through this I have acquired a wealth of knowledge of the whole production process. I have led many small teams in both film and games, giving me a deep understanding of how to motivate, inspire and manage others.

My skills are broad. Not only am I competent at 3d modeling and character animation, but also rigging, lighting, texturing, visual effects and rendering. I’m fluent with many different 3d apps and can blend into any pipeline. Outside of my core 3d skills, I’m also excellent at motion graphics, editing, storyboarding, layout, shooting, directing and producing.

I have never missed a deadline, even if it meant that long hours were required to meet them. I excel under pressure, being able to deliver quality work within tight time and budget constraints. Most importantly, I have a genuine passion for my work and a relentless commitment to quality.

If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to call me anytime. Thanks for visiting my website!
