In 2017 I graduated from the Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Fine Arts - Animation (With Distinction). My GPA was 6.429. My previous studies included an Advanced Diploma of Screen (Visual Effects) which I completed in 2008.
During 2016 and 2017 I was involved in the production of three short animated films within QUT's Animation studio "Brass Monkey". My roles for these productions included Lead Technical Director, Modelling,/Texturing, Rigging, and Render Wrangler.
Freelance projects have included -
A Google funded project for the organisation, Bravehearts, to design a digital character for use in an interactive platform for relationships education in primary schools.
Modelling and visual effects for a kick starter funded fan-based Star Wars short film which screened at a science fiction convention in the USA in 2015.
Between 2009 - 2015 I worked on a part-time basis as a multi-instrumental teacher for Education Queensland, working in many Gold Coast and Brisbane primary and secondary schools. I am a skilled percussionist and have been involved with bands and orchestras since a young age. Currently I am a member of the Queensland Wind Orchestra and Brisbane Symphonic Band. I have also worked as a percussionist for several musical production companies (Queensland Musical Theatre, Phoenix Ensemble and Spotlight Theatre).
After completing high school I studied Music Technology at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and possess advanced skills in the areas of live sound recording, audio mastering and sound effects.
My current skills and interests lie in the areas of character modelling, hard surface/prop modelling, environment design, UV unwrapping and texturing. I am skilled in the use of software packages including Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, Lego Digital Designer, Substance Painter/Designer, 3D-Coat and Adobe Photoshop, and I am always striving to further develop my knowledge in these areas as well as keeping up to date with new technologies.
