ABOUT

I started my career working with British comedians The Mighty Boosh, creating visual effects and helping develop the look of their TV series. Soon after this I soon found myself in the commercials art department at the world-renowned visual effects studio MPC. There I worked primarily as a digital matte painter but also helped directors develop ideas by creating mood boards, designs, and concept art.

Since leaving MPC in 2014 I have been working as a freelancer where I combine my skills. I feel equally at home working as a digital illustrator or as a visual effects artist on a Hollywood production.
