United Kingdom,  Bournemouth Bournemouth University,  BA(Hons)Computer Animation Arts,  November 20, 2015
I am a 3rd year Computer Animation Arts BA(Hons) student, studying at Bournemouth University. Over the course of the two years I have become extremely proficient in Maya, and have produced an array of animations, rigs and python based scripts. Prior to university I had a very strong background in the education of design studying at Southdowns College for 3 years, which I recieved 3 A2 levels in Graphic Design, Photography and Philosophy as well as a Foundation in art. During this time I learnt advanced skills in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash.

I am always looking to expand my knowledge and feed my enthusiasm for this industry.
