Currently working as an Art Director. 

Studied Art and Design at Birmingham City University for three years, working with different mediums in the first two years, using graphics, animation, photoshop, illustrator and model making. In my third year I worked on a set design, taking the idea from concept to filming. I then filmed a short sequence using the set that I had built, bought and decorated.

I have practical skills in constructing sets, decorating and dressing them. I am able to use Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, Google Sketchup, and have skills in storyboarding, graphics and prop buying. 

First Class BA Honours Degree in Art and Design at Birmingham City University. 

Based in Birmingham, full drivers license.
