New Zealand,  Auckland Media Design School,  Bachelor of Art & Design (3D Animation & Visual Effects,  November 28, 2014
I have recently completed my Bachelor of Art & Design (Visual Effects & Computer Animation) at Media Design School in Auckland, New Zealand, where I specialized as a Technical Director. Although I have developed a broad generalist skill base over my 3 years of study.

During my final year, I was part of two productions where we produced one short film (Impasse) and one web series (Shelved Stunts). During shelved stunts, I worked in a small team as a character TD. We were responsible for the design, modelling, & surfacing of one of the main characters (Beano). I took on other responsibilities as the production progressed. These included pipeline development, environment scouting & modelling, shot lighting, & rendering.

During Impasse I was able to broaden my skill base as I took on the role of Producer along with being the environment artist. This posed many challenges forcing me to become a better time manager, as well as developing my team management skills.
