I’m an artist and animator with thirteen years’ industry experience in animation, storyboarding, character design, sound design, video shooting and editing. I’ve worked on shoots and in post-production, in lead roles organising teams and workflows. I’ve directed and produced commercial projects, and worked within large and small teams to fulfill briefs.
I’ve animated since childhood when I made flip books, and drawing and animation are my hobbies as well as my profession.
