ABOUT

I have a passion to problem solve and utilise my wide variety of making skills, whilst being open to learn new ones.

 

Originally trained as a graphic designer and went on to producing motion graphics for the BBC. I stayed

 on at the BBC for 6 years and gained a wide experience of the whole production process, my jobs included: runner, researcher, talent runner, events organiser, digital technician, video editor and art department assistant.

 

My experience working on the BBC show ‘Inside No.9’, prompted me to pursue a career in model making and since then have graduated with a first class honours degree in technical; arts and special effects at Wimbledon College of Art.

 

I have had experience creating a latex/foam giant frog puppet for a small theatre company, working for Dan Martin at 13 Finger FX making various silicone pieces and am currently learning how to work with various foams and materials to create mascots, to which I aim to incorporate in my future creature suit and puppet work.

 

My main aim in life is to be making and I hope to be able to gain enough skills to be able to take on any project.
