Animator, video person, designer, mentor with Arts Emergency and lover of bright colours and stubby pencils. Previous 51st best stone skimmer in the world. 

My animation work's been screened at festivals all over the world, including London Short Film Festival, London Internaitonal Animation Festival, Kyiv Short Film Festival, 20minmax Germany and others.

I've also helped ship a critically acclaimed video game, Tearaway Unfolded, and created animations, films and illustrations for a bunch of cool folk including MediaMolecule, the Cooperative Bank, Saatchi and Saatchi, MTV, D&AD, various other ad agencies and a whole bunch of lovely charities.

Most importantly, I make a mean cup of tea and excellent scrambled eggs.
