About me
Living and working in East London, I am passionate about design and making things. I have predominantly worked in film and TV, making puppets, props and sets and would love to both put my experience to good use and to expand my knowledge and skill set further with new challenges.

Work history
    Model Maker
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    For the past 2 years I have been working as a model maker on the stop-motion animation feature film 'Isle of Dogs', directed by Wes Anderson. Working in the puppet department, primarily in moulding and casting, I was involved in many of the processes of puppet making, as well as some prop making and general art department duties. One of my main responsibilities was to cast the lead character (Atari)’s replacement faces and phonetic mouth plugs, as well as multiple other leading and background characters’ faces, plugs and bodies. My other duties included making silicone and aluminium polyurethane moulds, casting hero bodies from a range of different casting silicones and foam latex, trimming and seaming hero puppets, fitting faces and using dragon to ensure continuity.

    I worked on finishing two puppets made from silicone and polyurethane resin that were used in a stop-motion sequence during the film. I also restored these puppets after filming and prepared them for private display.
