About Me

I first Knew i wanted to work in this amazing industry  when i was 15. I came home from school and had just purchased Fallout 3. This was my first proper immersive experience and it showed me that i could use my skill's for something amazing and hopefully inspire the next generation of artist after me, either for films or games.

A junior/mid Level 3D generalist and concept artist, with experience in art direction and look development. nice, outgoing and artistic would be the three best things to describe me. I enjoy learning new things and meeting new people.

With 15 years of drawing experience, I strive to reach a professional standard in my art to work as a concept artist/illustrator. I also have an extensive knowledge of 3D skills such as: MAYA, MUDBOX and ZBrush. My main skills with 3D would be character modelling, prop and asset creation, texturing, rigging and intermediate knowledge of dynamics.
