I have had several years of experience professionally as a CHARACTER ANIMATOR and LAYOUT ARTIST, in both independent freelancing, and full studio environments.
I have a Bachelor in Multimedia Systems from Monash University, in Australia under my belt, which has given me a great base for not only 3D animation, but other forms of multimedia;
I have also created flash based websites, and a CDrom software that is now used as an English Language Training tool in missionary fields around the world.
Software skills include : Autodesk Maya, Adobe AfterFX, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Flash, Adobe Premier, Adobe Audition.
I am also tertiary animation teacher; lecturer and tutor. Having worked for some of Auckland's leading animation schools.
- LIFEWAY COLLEGE
- SOUTH SEAS ANIMATION SCHOOL.
My animation skills link with my performance skills in a way that allows clear and relatable communication on a human to human level, teaching students skills they can use to follow their creative dreams in animation.
Film-making and creativity is such an amazing gift and opportunity for anyone involved or interested in it; to be able to help people to pursue their dreams is an honor that I hope I never take for granted.
