About me

An award winning digital artist, I have created many projects that go across a broad range of practices including illustration, 3D modeling, animation, interactive media and games. In 2010-13 I worked for The Sunday Times iPad edition creating many interactive feature articles including Bin Ladens–Neptune Spear, Queens Diamond Jubilee, London Olympics 2012 and Paralypics. The last few years I have been working as a freelancer and games. Creating a mobile game in 2013 that has recieved over 500k downloads. Which then got recognition by Microsoft, giving me the oportunity to make Xbox One games and start a two man company ‘Aniode’, developing a PC and Xbox One local co-op game “Nature’s Zombie Apocalypse” where you play as animals saving the world from a zombie human race. Due for release in early 2016 on Xbox one and currently availble on Steam early access.
