3D Generalist; Freelance Animator

  • Location: Ilford, London
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

I am an intelligent, articulate and reliable individual with a passion for excellence in all that I do.

Having worked as a freelancer in the music and games industries I have extensive experience in meeting deadlines through self-directed work. I take pride in my communication and organisational abilities, and relish the opportunity to learn and grow in a team environment. I am proficient across the 3D pipeline, with skills including modelling, animating, rigging, rendering and post-production.

I graduated from Portsmouth University with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Animation in 2015, and since then have worked as an indie game artist.

In 2016 I was honoured to win the much-coveted Yellow Pencil award at the D&AD New Blood Awards for
Outstanding Creative Achievement.
