In 2009 I graduated from Royal College of Art (London) with an MA in Animation,
My work combines 2D animation, still photography and live action footage. I specialise in making animated documentaries. Personal history and collective memory are central themes in my work. I develop fictional stories based on factual events, archive material and travel journals.
In recent years I have also produced and directed promotional videos for charities, organizations and the commercial sector. Working independently or with colleagues I can provide a range of products from filming and post-production to animated logos and info-graphics.
I have extensive experience of working with a range of traditional animation techniques such as oil paint on glass, sand animation, large scale and pixilation. I am proficient at using the Adobe suite and often utilize digital animation in my work.
I am passionate about teaching and have experience in both formal and non-formal education. Since 2007, I regularly taught animation and drawing at the UCA Farnham. I have also worked with the BFI, the RachOut RCA, UCL, University of the Art London, the Tate and University of East London. I have experience teaching adults and children, and have worked with vulnerable people such as the elderly, homeless teens, mental health patients and children with special needs. I believe that Art (in all of its forms) plays a great importance in the process of developing healthy social structures thus is essential to living.
