About me
I am first and fore mostly a media artist, who studied at London College of Communication. My time at university gave me determination for a career in which I hold a true passion for. The tutors challenged me to work in areas of design that had previously been unknown to me and to push my skill set to the professional standards of todays media industry. I have an understanding of user experience, affordance and interactivity from the Video Game Design course. After acquiring a foundation in 3D and video game analysis and keen to progress my artistic skills further, I moved onto Design for Interaction and Moving Image BA degree. Enjoying challenging myself, I explored new types of media, made possible by the technical support from my university. During the course, I refined my graphic design skills and developed a greater technical understanding of design softwares. Towards the final year of the course my focus in video post-production expanded to animation and interactive 3D work. I would define myself as not only being motivated, but also sociable and approachable. My time as a videographer and 3D designer for Hellicar & Lewis, an interactive design agency, taught me many valuable lessons: in time management, self-confidence and openness to critique - skills I’ve found necessary for teamwork and communication. Freelancing these past few years and working remotely from a number of different countries have given me the freedom to experiment with my own work. I dedicated this time to working on passion projects and creating experimental films, inspired by the places I visited and the people I met. Having relocated to Berlin I look forward to the next step in my career, where I hope to work alongside other creative professionals as part of a team, to share knowledge and experience and to develop further as a 3D designer and video artist.

    The Order of TimeJoseph and I were approached by Penguin Books to collaborate on the launch of a new book by best-selling author Carlo Rovelli. The book, titled The Order of Time, focuses on our finite understanding of time as a concept. Our aim was to create an animation that could begin to encapsulate this fundamental, albeit very human, lack of comprehension. Carlo Rovelli's work excels in being vast and poetic while approachable and clear. In my animation that went with the announcement of his latest book,

    My role within the company was as diverse as my skill set. During my time at Hellicar & Lewis the full range of my abilities were tested. I would develop 3D concept images for pitch documents, design, light and render 3D elements for still image projects, film and edit footage for interactive instillations and the Vimeo page, discuss creative project developments as part of a team and develop motion graphics for the company's identity.
