“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it.” –

I am an animation and illustration student with a strong passion for character design and storytelling. While I have a huge admiration  for animation itself, I prefer the pre-production stage where the creation of the characters and story starts.

During the three years I have spent at university, I have discovered so much about myself.  The process of creating my own personal projects has enabled me to develop my own visual style. During my final year, I have been able to develop my own characters and narrative concepts for an adventure/horror television series; two of my favourite genres. I have always loved horror and that feeling of fear when you see a character on screen. To be able to achieve that in animation  is something I am extremely proud of.

My mind has always been crazy as well as being imaginative. Animation has allowed me to bring those ideas to the screen and to share them with everyone. Creating characters and stories is my driving force; I can be myself and be proud of what I do and what I want to do for the rest of my life. I am strange, creative, determined and a nerd. I’m happy with that.
