Bio

Starting out as a Landscape Designer at age 19, I have conceptualized, sculpted and built many beautiful courtyards, walls and outdoor spaces. Ten years on and self taught, I moved into Visual Effects working on numerous television shows for Pacific Renaissance.

 

In total, I have amassed 20 plus years experience in the VFX industry with a focus on television series, advertisements and short independent films. Some of the long running projects I have worked on include Xena Warrior Princess, Spartacus, Evil Dead, Hunt for the Wilder People and Power Rangers. More recently, I have written, illustrated and recorded music for a children's book, 'Grimble the Heavy Footed Feket'.

 

I am a highly curious, personable and versatile person who likes to work both independently and collaboratively with others. My skills and strengths include being able to move quickly and creatively as a project unfolds, problem solving and up-skilling to suit changing needs. Bringing the visual virtual space to the creative actual space is something I am inherently drawn to.

 

In this current and new phase, I am open to anything but hoping to find creative work that steers away from gore. I have a emerging passion for outdoor spaces and children's content; for instance creating websites, educational tools, models, animations, books and playgrounds.
