I design, direct and produce video motion graphics and digital effects sequences. I am a senior 2d and 3d animator / digital artist with a career of over twenty years working with computer graphics. I originally worked for eleven years in Soho at the heart of the UK post production industry. I then co-founded the company SquareZero in Shoreditch in 2003 where we worked on events, broadcast TV, promos and other digital media. Alongside the typical applications of CGI we perfected the art of creating holographic content for the Pepper's Ghost style stage projections. I'm a natural artist who has found plenty of scope to be creative in my work making television graphics and title sequences. I have a wide breadth of experience in professional high-end CG.

I thrive on the challenge to design, solve and create any idea that can be imagined. My passion is to make inspiring visuals and put them on screen.

I am a visiting lecturer teaching Nuke and VFX at Greenwich University, London.
