Summary

With 18 years experience as a 3D Artist in the games industry I have produced exclusively for the PlayStation platform but have recent experience with PC development and mobile platforms.

As a highly motivated and self-taught CG artist I have always pushed the industries’ current tools to produce real-time art work of the upmost quality. Being interested in game engines, I have always enjoyed working with cutting edge technology to push the envelope of real-time graphics. I continue to provide creative input into producing some of the industry's best tools and rendering technology to produce work of excellent merit. As a keen learner and avid tech fanatic I always seek and pursue innovation.
