I'm an artist and production manager, working primarily in 2D, hand-drawn animation. I've enjoyed an incredibly varied career and particularly love working with the people in this industry.
As a former design engineer, I'm technically minded and frequently deliver TVPaint training sessions.
Here are some of the projects I've been fortunate enough to work on:
'Giants' Music Video for Riot Games - Animation Production Manager at The Line
Dora and the Lost City of Gold - 2D Animation Line Producer at Blink Industries
Gorillaz Saturnz Barz - 2D Production Manager at Passion Pictures
We're Going on a Bear Hunt - Line Producer at Lupus Films
Ethel and Ernest - Animation Supervisor at Lupus Films
Simon's Cat Off to the Vet - Art Director and Animation Supervisor
Longway North - Pilot Animation Assistant at Sacre Blue
The Red Turtle - Pre-Production Animation Assistant at Prima Linea
Titeuf le Film - Layout Cleanup Artist at Neomis
The Illusionist - Layout Artist and Animation Assistant at Django Films
I have also worked in props on live-action films such as Children of Men, Hot Fuzz, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Stardust and started out my working life as a design engineer in the automotive industry. In 2005 I completed a BA in Animation at the Arts Institute at Bournemouth. During my studies I was an intern on The Corpse Bride, Harry Potter and Nanny McPhee and took a course in Art Direction at Pinewood Studios.
