Summary

I am a Senior Artist with over 15 years of experience in creating high-quality environments and assets within the games industry. I have a passion for art and video games and wants to see each title I work on push the visual quality to a new level. I embrace new technologies, stay up to date with the industry and keep my skills current. I am heavily relied on for trialling new techniques and workflows; liaising closely with technical art to guide them on tool creation testing and feedback suggestions.
