Over 10 years specialising in motion design in London and Sydney, I offer the highest level of experience and creativity. My strength as an illustrator fuels my unique approach, guaranteeing dynamic animation and design. Mostly working from my studio, I have vast experience working within teams, and relish new opportunities for collaboration. Whether delivering series packages for the BBC, animation for Olympic Ceremonies, or one-off web campaigns, I pride myself on my client skills and professional practice.

I've achieved 3 top industry awards at PROMAX / BDA, with a UK-Gold for 'Sausage', World-Gold for 'Immigration Nation', and Aus-Gold for 'Thanks For Listening'.

I have an MA in Digital Animation, a BA in Illustration, and teach animation at Camberwell College of Arts.
