As a reliable and organised individual with a passion for exercising creativity, I have plenty of enthusiasm to offer to any team. My history, in both academic and personal work, demonstrates an ability to produce positive results even under the pressure of a tight deadline. I have a keen attention to detail and follow instructions carefully; and I am a capable player in a team that is focused on meeting a common goal. When combined with my eagerness to learn, my current skills can make me a valuable addition to a working environment.



A passion for the skill of animation in all its forms - though particularly for traditional methods -, a fascination with the processes of making them, and a lifelong interest in drawing have led me to seek to pursue a career where I can put these to good use. I am eager to contribute my current abilities, and to develop them further as I learn from those already in the industry.




  • I am a resident of the United Kingdom and hold a valid UK passport.

  • I hold a UK driving license and have my own car.

  • I am willing and able to relocate for work as required.
