About Me... Professionally

I have recently graduated from the NCCA at Bournemouth University with a Distinction in MA 3D Computer Animation.

My main area of expertise lies in environment modelling and texturing. I can produce anything from structures and vehicles to bookshelves and mugs through both high and low polygon modelling. I get a real sense of satisfaction when I build my own worlds and populate them with my own creations.

Having recently graduated, I am very keen to obtain a position of work in a professional production environment and am eager to expand my already proficient skill set in the area of environment creation.

From my degrees, schooling and past work opportunities I have developed valuable skills in leadership, organisation, teamwork and problem solving. I'm enthusiastic, have a strong work ethic. I work well under pressure while remaining personable and good humoured.

About Me... Unprofessionally

I've always been interested in building things. From an early age I was found rummaging in the Lego box for that 'all important' piece only to smash my creations to bits while recording the moment on VHS with my brothers.

As I grew up I took a particular interest in video games and cartoons, and focused on graphic design and traditional art throughout my school education. During my Bachelors degree I made various 2D Flash animations and stop motion pieces before turning my hand to studying 3D at the NCCA.

When I'm not found with my eyes glued to a computer monitor I do lead some normal kind of existence! Drawing is one of my favourite pastimes and I have been known to play the occasional game of football. I do a fair amount of gaming and prefer games that have immersive storylines. I also really enjoy manic multiplayers (yes, I'm looking at you Super Smash Brothers...)

On another note, I love tea - just milk, no sugar.
