About

I specialize in high quality, dynamic visuals and 3D models for the architecture, construction, live events and entertainment industry. My experience in all levels of event set construction gives me keen insight into not just the design but also the budget, materials, construction and turnaround time of your build.

The result is a faster workflow and high-quality output because I understand your language and everything it takes to put an event together.

My whole life and career have been dedicated to art, design, engineering and creative problem solving.
Anyone who has worked in the London events industry can confidently say that they know how to solve a probem....fast!!
