My speciality, as a game artist, mostly focuses around props and environments. What I am looking forward to most from a place in the industry is the ability to continue to learn, further enhancing my skills as an artist. I am passionate about my work and the creativity it provides and I am excited to one day produce work that will end up in the games that people enjoy playing.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB TO START YOUR CAREER WITH?
My dream job would be as a prop artist, and somewhere with a positive work environment. I am most productive when both myself and the people around me are friendly and supportive of each other, so a job with this environment would be a great place for me to start.
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN FIVE WORDS OR LESS.
Supportive, Dedicated, Kind, Determined, Smart.
WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE?
I appeared on a CBBC Superhero show where I made and dressed up as my own superhero. I played the Trombone on the Lord Mayors Cricket ground alongside the London Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed on the Olivier stage at the National Theatre.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?
In five years’ time I would like to think that I have found my way into the industry and will be working in a company producing assets for a new title. I would also hope that I have moved into my own place by this point.
DESCRIBE A CHALLENGE THAT YOU HAD TO OVERCOME IN YOUR GROUP PROJECTS.
Working from home during the Covid-19 lockdown was very difficult. Not being able to see my friends in person and hang out with them was quite upsetting. It was difficult but we all managed to produce great work. I am so proud of everyone.
WHAT YOU RATHER BE A WIZARD, JEDI OR SUPERHERO? AND WHY?
I’m pretty sure most super powers can be replicated using spells or magic potions, and (whilst not completely accurate) most force abilities could be accomplished with magic too, including the lightsaber. Spells have a lot more practical uses too. Basically, I want to be a wizard.
IF YOU WOKE UP IN A VIDEOGAME, WHAT WOULD YOUR SPECIAL ABILITY BE?
I would imagine I would have an ability similar to the bard from Dungeons and Dragons where I can give inspiration die to my allies so they can get a small boost to their own stats.
WHY DO YOU DESERVE A GREATER SHARE OF SPACE IN THE YEARBOOK?
The person who started university at Escape is a vastly different person to the one I am now. Escape and the people I studied with changed me for the better and really made me feel like I was part of something special. I’ll miss this place.
