About me

I have recently graduated from Central Saint Martins after a two-year long Character Animation MA. I have directed and animated two short animated films, and have worked in a team on a third one. I have a solid understanding of the principles of animation and am comfortable working under pressure to meet deadlines. I enjoy operating both autonomously and collaboratively as a professional, and am consistently a strong contributor to any team. I deliver high quality work and take a realistic, logical approach to my work ethic. I excel at traditional animation, specifically TvPaint and hand drawn, although I am flexible when the situation requires it. I am very interested in becoming an animation director. As a film and animation enthusiast, I genuinely love both animating and supervising. My talent for animation and understanding of storytelling techniques have helped guide my fellow animators forwards on their own creative works, and I have proven especially on my last project, "Resilience", to be competent in dividing the work among other members so that it played to their strengths. As a recent graduate and as someone who enjoys experimenting, I'm looking forward to delving into the professional and creative atmosphere of the industry.
