About me

I have over 5 years experience working with a variety of clients using animation and visual communication to explain, promote & entertain. Motivated by my love for drawing, art, films, visual communication and storytelling led me to graduate in 2012 from University College Falmouth with a 1st class degree in Digital Animation. I moved up to London later that year and commenced my animation career. Along the way, I’ve had the good fortune to work with some wonderful clients and on some great projects. Animation is a fantastic medium for providing clarity and engaging audiences... it’s also super fun to bring stories and ideas to life!

Education

Currently

BA (Hons) Digital Animation - First Class Honours

University College Falmouth

Sep 2009
  • Falmouth, United Kingdom
  • On this course, I learned about the principles of animation & applied them to both independent and team projects. The course covered many areas including pre production, 2D, 3D, visual effects and cinematography. The course has now changed its title to "Animation and Visual Effects." Before this, I spent one year on UCFs Illustration degree. Whilst on this course I learned several core skills: colour, composition, drawing, conceptual thinking, narrative and pacing. My decision to change resulted from my desire to work more collaboratively and I was more influenced by film and animation.
