I come from a family which has a long history in the media. Starting with my grandfather editing in the 1940s for the theatres of Wardour Street, to my uncle doing photography for diplomatic visits in the 1960s and then my father working for the Norwegian Army right up to the present day, I aim to carry on the trend of visual artists right into the 21st century.

 

Graduated from the University of the Creative Arts, Farnham in 2008.

 

Based near London specialised in online/offline post production especially with Final Cut Pro. Home equipment consists of Final Cut Studio 2009 (version 3), Final Cut Pro X, Cinema 4D, Adobe Production Premium and Mocha.

 

Clients include Channel 5, Comic Relief, HP, National Trust, Daily Express, OK! Magazine, The British Chamber of Commerce, Zoe Jackson, Kim Winser and Flixmedia.

 

Over ten years of experience working with a vast range of clients and organisations. Proficient in a range of post-production programs, I am dedicated to learning the intricate details within every program I use for a production, be it professional or personal. I take pride in working under pressure within a post environment. My time at university allowed me to express myself both practically and creatively for which I am most appreciative.

 

In January of 2012, one of my animations was screened on top of the BT Tower for an hour. This showcased my After Effects portfolio using contemporary and elegant lines which went down with the organisation behind the BT Tower.

In February of 2009, I had one of my abstract films screened at the Eat Our Shorts Film Festival at the BFI Southbank Theatre. It was rated highly by the documentarian Paul Watson commending it for the film's "use of colour and animation techniques."
