I grew up in Brisbane, Australia with 80's cartoons and spent most of my spare time drawing. When Dad brought home our first PC I instantly took to MSPaint and recreated my favourite characters, later animating them in a program whose name escapes me. Always interested in cartoons, comics, art, design and anything visually appealing, I studied Fine Art and Animation at TAFE before beginning my career in '99 as a 2D/3D generalist at an agency tackling a range of tasks from designing websites to animating kids cartoons. I then moved into the games industry with Auran and worked on a few projects there (Bridge-It, MyVirtualHome, Trainz and Battlestar Galactica) on both PC and console.
When they closed in late 2007 I ventured out on my own as a freelance creative for 7 years and worked across a huge range of design projects from mobile games and logo design, to fashion prints and animated music videos. I then teamed up with a local startup for a couple of years and worked as a Senior Digital Artist creating 3D assets, UI design and promotional videos (character design, motion graphics, animation, video editing). I'm now back freelancing on some fun projects, though I really enjoy being part of a team and am looking to join a new studio and continue creating visually interesting and client satisfying artwork. If you're interested in talking further about how I can help with any projects, or feel like I'd be a good fit for your team, please don't hesitate to get in touch through info@squidtank.com.
