I have been working in the games industry for nearly 8 years now. I originally studied architecture and am part 1 qualified, after working for a couple of architects firms I decided architecture wasn't for me and studied computer animation.

During this course I got the chance to work for a small games company called Pukka Games where I was a character artist creating concepts and sprites for Nintendo Gameboy Colour Games.

I then worked for Lionhead Studios on Black & White 2, where I had the opportunity to get a wide variety of experience, doing Concepting, Environments, Props, Characters, Visual Effects and PR Images. After 3 years I decided I needed experience abroad and so joined Rockstar Games in Vienna Austria working on environments and props.

Since I returned to England I have worked for KUJU London as an Environement Artist on Battalion Wars 2, Lionhead Studios again this time as an Effects Artist on Fable 2, and now finally I am working at Codemasters Studio Guildford as a Senior Artist creating effects.

I love playing computer games especially CAPCOM games and I get much inspiration from them . So in my spare time I try to do alot of concept stuff as well as modelling, although it can be very difficult to find the time.
