About me

I am a Visual Effects Artist with over 14 years of experience in the T.V, commercials and music video industries.

I am one of the co-founders of the award winning Hi-Sim studios where I work as a creative director and visual effects artist. I also work as a freelance artist for film, TV, commercials, music videos and other mediums. I am represented as a director by Ridley Scott Associates where I have been given the opportunity to direct and work as an artist for a range of commercial projects.

I am proficient in technical aspects of the pipeline as well as the creative side. I am able to think logically to solve problems. I am also accomplished in rapid and accurate modelling, texturing, effects, lighting, optimised render setups, and compositing. I am largely self taught and strive
to keep up to date with new technologies.

Full clean driving license.
