You may ask yourself, "why are glow worms so cute?", well maybe you didn't but this is what I constantly think about in the world in all its glory of awesome creatures and stories waiting to be told through animation and illustration. ​

Hopefully it's clear that I'm a professional freelance illustrator and animator for hire. I love creating images rich with story, character, and texture that capture the imagination of the viewer. And for some reason I can't stop drawing tentacles, monsters, and long cute little critters.​I attended Intec College to study Graphic and Advertising Designate which I achieved... Yay! But then I started self-teaching myself animation and illustration for games, tv and publishing. I have experience in art, book covers, board game asset illustration, logo design and pretty much whatever involves art. In terms of motion graphics and animation, I have experience in children's tv series to corporate explainer videos, I spend most of my days creating social media content for my clients and promotional videos.
