I completed my 3rd year on the BA honors Animation production course at the Arts University in Bournemouth, England. (A skillset accredited course).
I am a very committed and extremely hard working Character animator with a strong belief in teamwork and creative excellence. I am passionate about storytelling and film making, always striving for the best possible results.
The Adobe suite, Cel action, Toon Boom Harmony & Autodesk Maya.
My main skills include feature quality character animation, from keys to clean up, and in 2D, hand drawn or CGI. However in my spare time I love to write and develop short films and TV ideas. Including my most recent project 'Blink'.
I am a good problem solver and can juggle tasks without losing a sense of priority or standard. I am extremely hard working and never turn down a task that I have been given. I will always strive to bring a sense of intrigue and fun into my work (when appropriate) and will always be pushing myself to learn and grow, as both a Human and as an Artist.
