A BRIEF BIO

If you want to briefly get to know me.

The headers summarise everything.

I'm from the country and grew up by the sea,

in what was once considered a luxury Victorian era get away.

I started out making animations,

as a creative outlet. So a lot of clay and a crispy 240p webcam, allowed me to make videos. 

then other art stuff things,

dark room negative developing, photoshop, illustrator and print layout.

Also various printing technique and 3D modelling, the first model being a TIE fighter. My print lecturer also introduced me to bookmaking, a technique some might say is rather niche.

Several years in college.

Video and design interested me, but I didn't know how I could make a living out of it, so I went to study film and graphic design at the city college. It was at this point opportunities to showcase work and create installations came along. I started working with sound on several radio projects and with graphics in a student run commission based design studio.

I took a brief deviation from my career path.

I took a full time job in retail, but soon later realised that it wasn't satisfying or challenging enough. I wanted to work closer to what I loved doing, so took a gamble on further education, which made it feasible to move to London.

Moving to London for study and work opportunities.

I enrolled on a practical filmmaking course in South London, connected with like minded friends, landed several internships then started commercial jobs in the art dept.

I enjoy what I get to do.
