I'm not really a believer in doing life in the conventional way. My path to where I am today has definitely been the road less travelled. I have loved creating and making things ever since I was a little kid. Tony Hart and Morph were my personal heroes. I would spend hours writing stories, drawing, painting and making things out of paper mache. University brought the chance to create full time. I studied Illustration at the University of Brighton and loved every minute of it (minus a few bad crits). I learned how to communicate visually, the principles of design and a different way of seeing the world. In the final year I started to experiment with animation. After uni I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do and started to travel, funding my adventures with admin work. My first trip on my own was to Costa Rica where I volunteered in a school, helping with English classes and painting a mural. Next I went to Madrid where I lived with a host family before finding a teaching job in an academy. I spent four years there, progressing to Senior Teacher and Cambridge Examiner, but always knowing I wanted to one day get back to something more creative. In October last year I made the change I'd needed. I signed up to study for a master's in Motion Graphic Design, opting to do the course in Madrid so that I would have to use and improve my Spanish. After 9 months of hard work, long nights, highs and lows, the course finished in July with a presentation of my showreel, in Spanish, to around 50 students and design professionals. I've never done anything quite so scary or felt quite so proud of myself when it was over. On my unconventional path I've accumulated different skills: teaching, presenting, copywriting, communicating, drawing, designing, idea and concept generation, Spanish, translating, animation, patience, independence and teamwork. I'm a few years older than most people starting out on a creative career but I'm bringing a lot of life experience with me. I couldn't be more ready to get started.
