Before joining Buckinghamshire New University in 2018, I was a generalist in the visual effects industry for 8 years. This included being a lead layout artist at Jellyfish Animation and taking on freelance generalist work for major studios such as Disney, The BBC and ITV.
I studied for my BA (Hons) at Farnham UCA and am presently studying for a PGCAP in Education. My specialist area of interest is 3D Modelling, which is interesting to me because the technology and techniques involved frequently evolve. It is useful to be adaptive and up to date, to create digital work that with 3D printing technology becoming more accessible than ever, can be converted into a tangible object you can keep forever.
My career as an academic thus far has been a really fulfilling experience. I take great pride in the success of our graduates to some of the top film, game and television studios in the world. Nurturing and encouraging them is a privilege.
