Bio

I've been working in digital, both in the UK and NZ, since 2000. My background was mainly in Web & UI, along with some print design and brand work until I started animating in 2015. Now I work purely as a Motion Designer and work as a Teaching Assistant for School of Motion.

 

I enjoy being involved in the creative process as well as getting hands on with the tools and have a good eye for detail.

 

I love simple, clean design, good typography and things that move well.
