New Zealand,  Auckland Media Design School,  Bachelor of Art and Design, 3d Animation and Visual Effects.,  November 22, 2014
Feeling I had hit a development barrier in my career, I made the decision to return to tertiary education to up-skill and develop as an artist. Attending Media Design School through 2013-2014, earning a Bachelors of Art and Design helped me achieve this goal. While studying I was able to write and direct the short film Impasse, working closely with 9 other talented artists to bring the film to life. Specialising in technical direction and problem solving, I enjoy working in many areas of productions including project development, modelling, texturing, lighting, rendering and compositing.
