Skills

I am a Visual Effects Artist that has had experience in the industry by providing my skills on various different projects. Working on these projects has also allowed me to develop skills such as problem solving, working under pressure, working long hours, patience, and good organization when sticking to a schedule. I can work well in a team as I have excellent communication skills that allows me to get work done quickly and efficiently when working together. I can also work well alone as I am independent and have enough knowledge and experience in the work I do. I always provide a positive out look and I have a lot of perseverance which allows me to get though any problems  while working. I am passionate about my work and art which allows me to be consistently artistic and creative while working.

Portfolio

These are some images form some of the projects I've worked on with different companies. (From left to right: Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Episode, Under The Skin, Thunderbirds Are Go) The project I most enjoyed was Under The Skin because, as an independent production, it allowed me to be creative and it was interesting and exciting freelancing on a film as I had previously worked with as a part of company on films. I feel proud of the work I have put into each of the projects and of the finish piece I helped to create.
