I have been working since 2007 in Film and Games as a skilled 3D Generalist and Technical Artist.

I was fortunate enough to release multiple online video tutorials, educational articles, and web classes, both personally and in collaboration with LinkedIn Learning. I completed my Bachelors of Arts in Digital Film and Animation at Middlesex University London (MDX).
I am available for job offers, contract work and training.
