I am a Melbourne based producer, art director & illustrator working in concept art and production development focusing on character design and environments. I have extensive experience covering areas of animation, children's books, phone applications, editorial and online education.
Currently I am looking for design/development work in the animation industry and contract/freelance illustration positions. I am also interested in positions of art direction, project co-ordination and management. I hold a Australian and British passport and open to overseas positions.
I have had various positions as a freelance and studio artist including: traditional illustration design, digital illustration, flash animation, flash character builds, character, prop and background design, colourist, storyboards, art director, project co-ordinator, director and producer.
Most recently I have worked on the design team of the Nelvana animated series The Day My Butt Went Psycho (two seasons) and in 2012 I produced, directed and designed an animated pilot for Cartoon Network/Turner Entertainment Asia.
Sometimes I'll appear in TV commercials and in the background of a TV show...and occasionally I dress up for conventions and collect LEGO minifigures!
