I am an Australian (Melbourne based) illustrator working in concept art, character design and environments, an art director and flash animator.
Im currently working as a designer on the Nelvana/Studio Moshi series, The Day My Butt Went Psycho and in 2012 I produced, directed and designed a pilot for Cartoon Network (Asia Pacific).
I have eight years design experience for animation, children's books, phone applications, editorial, education, web and character animation (traditionally trained). 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!
