I have a 2.1 in BA (Hons) Digital Animation, and since then have taken part in many collaborations and freelance projects, which has helped broaden my experiences and improve my abilities. Since I graduated I have designed ecards, worked as a cleanup artist for an animator from Nickelodeon U.S, created the storyboard for a possible upcoming television series, and most recently worked in a web design office as a graphic designer and animator. However, what I am looking for the most right now is to get into a studio and work as part of a busy team in a fast-paced environment.
I am enthusiastic, reliable, helpful and able to work well under pressure. A team player who can work independently too. In a studio or busy work place, I'm always happy to run errands and help out wherever I'm needed. I am friendly, optimistic, always in a good mood and talk to others with a smile and a positive attitude. Ultimately I would like to work my way up the media career ladder and eventually pitch and direct something of my own. I will do whatever is necessary for each project to be a success, am both ambitious and realistic, and I don't give up!
