About Me

I am a very friendly person, and a hard worker, I usually get along with the team that I am working along side. Throughout my years of working in animation I have acquired a fair amount of skills which means i can work with other animators and also help them.


Work History
Mar 2014 - Present


From Software

Because the team did such a good job for Dark souls 2 we were brought back for another project at From Software known as Bloodborne. As i had worked at From software for a while the language barrier we had was completely gone. 

Aug 2012 - Mar 2014


From Software

One of my favorite jobs was when i was working at From Software as it was incredibly difficult as there was so much to animate during this game, the game i worked on was Dark souls 2. The language barrier that we had at the company was quite difficult to overcome.

Video Game Animation

When it comes to animating video games its my passion, this means I am determined to do a good job and work my hardest at all times. I have over 7 years experience working as an animator.

Working in a team

I am great at working in a team as i can be friendly with everyone and also make sure we are working to a deadline as best as I can.


With my time at Capcom i experienced what it would be like to work with code, i quite enjoyed it and learnt a lot, so my coding skill is quite good but it still needs practice.


Working as an animator requires you to work in a huge team and being able to communicate with everyone, I can communicate quite well and i am very friendly to the team I will be working with, also working in Japan I had to overcome the language barrier to communicate.
