I first got my taste of CGI in the mid 90s when the MS-DOS based Imagine 3 was given away on floppy disk on the cover of a magazine. I fumbled my way through the software and began confusing my art teachers at school with curious images of cones and spheres reflecting chequerboards. Since then I continued teaching myself 3D while studying maths, physics and economics, going on to study economics at university.
After graduating and deciding a life in banking wasn't for me I pursued my other great interest to 3D which was music production. After having a few records released I ended up managing albums for the Ministry of Sound record label, but I couldn't help but be envious of the guys getting to do the more creative work - making the TV adverts which I oversaw. I finally took the plunge in 2011 and did an intensive 3 month course in VFX at Escape Studios, making sure that all the knowledge I had picked up over the years was up to scratch. Escape featured my showreel on their website and pretty soon I was hired by Finish TV (now called Freefolk) where I worked up until the end of 2017 (and since as freelance), mainly on commercials.
I've recently made the move from London to San Francisco with my wife. Other than visual effects and music production I love making video games and photography, particularly using film.
