PERSONAL STATEMENT
I am a friendly, well organised and motivated individual and I can adapt my workflow so that I am able to work independently or with others co-operating as part of a team. Due to the vast amount of freelance work I have undertaken, I have learnt to be disciplined and reliable. Furthermore, I am a fast learner with a strong attention to detail and I always strive to achieve my best. Throughout my Art & Animation course I was taught how to use Autodesk 3ds Max and how to combine it with my Adobe Photoshop skills.

I have many creative hobbies from which I have been able to coincide with my work - these include digital/traditional art, photography, filming and photo/video editing. For example, I created a video which helped a group called Crawley Parkour win the ‘Active Sussex Sportivate Project of The Year’ Award in 2013. Additionally, video games have always been a keen interest of mine, I also enjoy reading books and collecting sculptures.

At the age of 12 I was introduced to Photoshop CS2. Over the next four years I began to teach myself the necessary skills I later used to design a logo which I won a competition with. It was held by the well known Chestnut Tree House charity and upon winning I appeared in a local newspaper. In addition, I entered another competition to create a character design for the popular game Sunset Overdrive. I was featured on the gaming news website IGN with the other finalists and my design was voted second place.
