I am a 20 year young 3D generalist who is looking to engage in a career which allows me to express and experiment with my creativity. Additionally I would like to work my way up to a senior position, or lead, which allows me greater opportunity to help others in need of assistance.
GET TO KNOW GEORGE
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB TO START YOUR CAREER WITH?
As my current level of experience is focused primarily on the area of video games design, I aim to achieve the role of Hard Surface Artist.
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN FIVE WORDS OR LESS.
Unique, Independant, Positive, Innovative, Honest.
WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE?
I find it a difficult task to describe how I am unique. I know that I am a person who is comfortable being himself however I know I will always experiment with my ability to push myself outside of my comfort zone and explore the possibilites outside of the norm.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?
Over the next five years I aim to establish myself as a well known and efficient 3D games artist, by obtaining a job in the video games industry now and utilising the skills I have learnt from my degree. I am also keen to explore the new possibilities 3D games design will offer in the coming years and hope to produce a masterpiece!!
TELL US AN ACHIEVEMENT YOU'RE PROUD OF.
I won the Engineering Education Scheme where I worked amongst a team of 5 to develop a low cost replication of a laser targeting acquisition device for the military. Now, whilst this is not entirely something to be proud of ethically, this was the defining moment I knew I could be successful through the industry of 3D product design and production.
DESCRIBE A CHALLENGE THAT YOU HAD TO OVERCOME IN YOUR GROUP PROJECTS.
I've worked on group projects from the good to the bad to the 'why did I sign up for this course?'. One thing that I learnt from each, was that communication really is the key to succeeding within a group task. It would not always be a problem that would occur, regardless it is a skill you need to have in order to approach any challenge within the industry and I am grateful for the said experience I have received throughout my university experience.
WHAT YOU RATHER BE A WIZARD, JEDI OR SUPERHERO? AND WHY?
Iron Man and literally just because I want to fly. I mean, it initially inspired me when I was young to become an entrepreneur from his independent ability to develop products that help people, but just give me his suit and let me do a couple laps around the world and I'm good.
IF YOU WOKE UP IN A VIDEO GAME, WHAT WOULD YOUR SPECIAL ABILITY BE?
I mean it’s not an ability but I wouldn't mind whatever Rico Rodriguez is having - zip wiring through jungles and escaping high profile car chases by grappling onto crumbling buildings. Actually, I'll just take the gadgets if that counts.
WHY DO YOU DESERVE A GREATER SHARE OF SPACE IN THE YEARBOOK?
I thought I was getting my own book? Just kidding, I'll appreciate any slice of the pie :)
