About me
I have recently graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2021 and did my undergrad in Singapore with a Major in Digital Animation and graduated in 2016. I then worked professionally in Singapore’s largest telecommunications company as an in-house animator and designer for 2 years before I decided to freelance in Singapore for 1 year. Then I moved to London for my masters and freelanced in London for 3 years and am now based here. I would love the chance to work with other creatives to produce exciting animations together. I have a portfolio consisting of 3D, 2D and motion graphics animation but I have been working more with 2D of late but am very proficient with After effects. In addition to my work experience, I have a solid educational foundation in animation and design as I have always been passionate about films, conceptional advertising and storytelling.

He attempts to conjure up the home he spent his time with his mother in over and over but as it assembles, it crumbles continuously. Finally they meet and embrace and he finally is able to let her and the space around her go. This music video is an official selection for the SXSW (South by Southwest) film festival 2022.

     - SingaporeFull Time
    I worked as an in-house animator and designer for the biggest telecommunications company and in Singapore and it was a very fast paced environment. I was part of a team of 5-6 designers and animators but at my time there, I helped to redevelop and rebrand the comapany's brand identity. It was a very intense process as the business was very large so the brand guide that I developed had to be very extensive and versatile.

    Master of ArtsRoyal College of Art
     - London, United Kingdom
    I enjoyed my time pursing my masters in London, the Royal College of Art focused more on developing myself as an artist and director which allowed me to oversee every aspect of the short films I made. Here, I further developed my narrative and storyboarding skills which I truly believe is fundamental to any process. Effective and efficient storytelling is key to produce strong visual language.

     - Singapore
    I majored in Digital Animation with a minor in Art History . This programme was very rigorous but as a result, I developed a very deep foundation in all forms of animation. I had the chance to experiment with all mediums of production and this is where I realised I enjoyed the use of 2D and 3D animation to produce dynamic posing very efficiently.
