About me

I graduated in 1999 from Hertfordshire University with a BSc (Hons) in Software Systems for the Arts and Media. I cut my teeth doing interactive CD-Rom & Flash websites during the dot com bubble. Since then, most of my work has centred around 3D graphics, animation, video & motion design. I also love creating music, so whenever possible I tried to combine my passions. This pursuit of animation & music evolved in 2006, when I joined The Sancho Plan, a pioneering audio visual group. I became their lead artist, and was fortunate enough to create some amazing interactive audio visual shows which toured the globe. http://thesanchoplan.com/ I honed my 3D & VFX skills with five years working as a medical visualiser. Working with bio scientists to re create and visualise cellular and molecular activity was a fantastic experience.
