Hey there! I am a VFX Artist and Director based in Sydney.
My obsession with visual arts began at an early age. Probably since the first time I picked up a pencil! I became interested in animation in primary school, drawing frame-by-frame animations in a rudimentary piece of software called Animation Shop Pro. In high school I saved up enough to buy Flash, a more sophisticated 2D animation program. My creations became increasingly elaborate and ambitious, and before long I knew that filmmaking would become the driving force in my career.
I followed through by beginning a Bachelor of Digital Media degree at UNSW Art & Design. It was there that I began my journey into 3D visual effects. I landed an internship at a boutique studio in Sydney, where I greedily absorbed as much knowledge as possible. Soon I had a job at Method Studios, and later Alt.vfx where I was thrust straight into the deep end of photoreal visual effects for high-end clients.
After that, I moved to London and found my place in its thriving visual effects community. I freelanced at Electric Theatre Collective, and met a lot of like-minded people. I worked as a 3D generalist: responsible for managing large collections of assets as well as modelling, lookdev, lighting, storyboarding, previs and any other artistic task that was needed. It was in London that I began directing my own short films.
I have now returned to Sydney, and am working on post-production for my newest short film “Fungus”. It’s my most ambitious project to date, and I can’t wait to unleash it on the world! On top of that, I’m diving straight back in to freelance work here as a visual effects artist.
