About me

Recently I have opened up Werewolf alongside Matt Chapman, MD of Contagious.

Our raison d'être is in creating a variety of high quality 3D and motion content for clients including ad agencies, TV networks, and businesses of all shapes and sizes. We are a hungry and dynamic studio, with the expertise and experience to take on both small and larger scale projects.

I have been in the creative world for over 15 years honing my choice of skills and meandering career path.

I started my journey as an Audio Engineer and student of classical composition. Unfortunately this path was not meant to be as design seemed to follow me like a rabid dog, so I went full-time into Web Design as it afforded me the expression of creativity I was searching for through interaction and storytelling.

After spending copious amounts of time learning programming languages and designing for web, I stumbled upon After Effects in its infancy. My infatuation for the moving image was reignited and an insane love affair began. At the same time, I again found my 3D roots poking through the dust of adolescent dreams. And since that fateful moment I have never looked back.

Day and night I would scour books and the internet seeking the questions to 3D and motion design trickery. I learnt the hard way to say the least. Through shear perseverance and the drive to constantly better myself in my chosen craft, I have had the honour of collaborating with some of the most creative people in the industry whilst working on projects for prestigious brands large and small alike.
