Finding a strong interest in motion graphics I completed a Masters of Animation at the University of Technoloy, Sydney in 2007 and worked at SBS(Special Broadcast Service). After leaving SBS I worked at Foxtel, the largest cable television network in Australia, working on Arena, Foxtel On demand and Fox8.

Work includes the launch of the BT sport channel creating various digital outdoor displays graphics all over central London, online video content for Absolut vodka, Now TV and Virgin Media. I spent a year working as the Senior Motion designer for Leo Burnett, London, responsible for all motion graphics related projects.

Relocated back to Sydney, Australia in 2015 freelancing at DD8, Engine, Studio Hackett, Imagination, Girraphic, Mister and Mighty Nice. Completed Award School in 2016. Currently available for freelance, remote and collaborative motion graphic design projects.
