I'm a recent graduate from Swansea Metropolitan University, where I obtained a 1st class honours in 3D Computer Animation.


As well as my showreel above, here is my short animated film:

I'm seeking employment in the creative industries, as I have a desire to be creative and see my work transition from imagination to reality (or as real as 3D allows). I take an independent and enthusiastic approach to learning new applications and techniques. Good practical level of Maya and Fusion. Enthusiastic and a perfectionist.

Currently perfecting my use of character animation as well as character/environment design and modeling & rigging.

I enjoy working in a team, getting critical feedback from other is always useful for my own development. I have a drive to independent learning and problem solving.

While moving polygons around the screen & clinging on to the urban economy for the last 3 years at university at Swansea Metropolitan University has been fun, I would now like to take my skills and experience from the student level to a junior artist and dare i say it 'pro' level. I have excellent knowledge of Maya, eyeon digital fusion, after effects and Photoshop.

Maya, Photoshop and Fusion were used to create my major project (see above)
This includes modeling, texturing, animating, rendering and compositing.

To summaries myself in 5 words I would have to say:
Ø Motivated, intuitive, Friendly, Enthusiastic, good humoured

Aside from 3D, I enjoy playing and performing music such as rock, reggae, blues, jazz. Supporting Swindon Town FC, Formula 1 and general loitering.
