About me

I'm an experienced designer and builder of puppets and creatures for TV, film and theatre.

I'm also an illustrator and sculptor.

As a designer and fabricator I have worked for a wealth of companies on some very exciting projects. These have included Netflix, Lucas Film, BBC, Anarchy, Millenium FX, TED, Tiger Aspect, Lucasfilm, Working Title, Sky 1, Merlin Entertainment, Life Cast, Talk to the Hand, The Daryl Worbey Studios, Samuel Wyer, Illyria, New Theatre Royal, among many others.

I also do many individual commissions and like most creatives, I try to do a lot of personal projects, just for fun.
