I hate being in front of a camera, hence I'm behind it.

 
 
Describe your work in one sentence.
 
I'm a Pixelsmith and my work is a collection of digital sculptures telling little phantasmagoric stories.

 

 

What's the most important thing you've learnt in your line of work?

That good communication is key to get what you want from people.

 

 

What attracted you to your chosen field?

It's a field where you keep on discovering new things, where rules are constantly being broken.

 

 

Tell us about your best project to date. 

It's the one I'm working on now, it's a merging of old and new technologies... and that's all I will say.

 

 

What sets you apart from your competitors?

I'm a yes person.

 

 

Tell us a random fact about yourself.

I hate being in front of a camera, hence I'm behind it.

 

 

If you could work on any project for any company/organisation, what would it be and who would it be for?

I'd enjoy working for Virgin on its brand. I'm sure there are tons of things I would learn there.

 

 

Who inspires you and why?

I get inspired by many things and people, from film directors to my closest friends. Although I often immerse myself in movie soundtracks when I work, so I'll say what inspired me is music.

 

 

What's your favourite bit of kit?

It's always the last thing I've bought, so my camera.

 

What frustrates you the most about your job?

Don't get me started.

 

What pearl of wisdom can you offer to someone thinking about starting out in your industry?

Always look confident but not arrogant.

 

 

If you could have ONE super power, what would it be?

Shapeshifting.

 

 

What do you like about Creativepool?

I think its friendliness and no-bullshit attitude which is quite rare in both the Creative and 

creative recruitment sector.

 

 

What's your favourite song of all time? 

Ne me quitte pas - Jacques Brel.

 

 

And finally, what can a prospective customer expect from you?

Passion.
