What I Do

Animation & Video

With a Master of Animation degree, I can create just about any kind of animation: 2D, 3D and stop motion. I am also knowledgeable in video production including camerawork & photography, sound design, editing, and visual effects.

Web Design

I'm professionally experienced in front end web design and development, including e-commerce. I am also well versed in cPanel and MySQL databases.

3D Modelling & Game Art

I can produce high quality, textured 3D models for both film and games. I'm well acquainted with the Unity game engine, and can create both 2D and 3D assets and environments. I've recently also learned the techniques of 3D printing.

Graphic Design

I have professional experience in digital and print design, including books, logos, large format signage, web & user interface graphics and more. I can prepare any design to a printer's specifications.
