Particular strengths in creature and character animation. 

Strongly imaginative with the ability to inject humour into projects, giving the work a distinctive and clear relationship with the narrative. 

Previous experience in all stages of character modelling, rigging and animation, resulting in a thorough knowledge and understanding of the technical side, to run in parallel with the creative aspects.
