WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB TO START YOUR CAREER WITH?

A dream job to start my career would be a role as a junior game artist where I could work alongside varied and talented professionals. With a passion for artistic and story driven games, it would be great to start a career with a company that specialises in narrative-led titles.

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN FIVE WORDS OR LESS.

Diligent, creative, flexible, reliable, friendly.

WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE?

With a background in illustration for sequential art, I have a unique and varied skillset in visual storytelling. This means that I am capable of 3D art but also 2D illustration and storyboarding. Additionally, I have developed a unique skill set in creating vegetation for games.

TELL US AN ACHIEVEMENT YOU'RE PROUD OF.

I am especially proud of our team receiving an Excellence Award during the Rookies for our VR project. I Art Directed and worked with an excellent, hard working team. Receiving the Excellence Award for the quality of our project was extremely rewarding and validating to us as a whole.

DESCRIBE A CHALLENGE THAT YOU HAD TO OVERCOME IN YOUR GROUP PROJECTS.

For our final project we had to adapt to working remotely very quickly. During this time, I encountered issues with software licences and actively looked into alternatives. This included creating trees for our environment on a 20-day trial of Speedtree and cleaning them up in Maya.

WHICH GAME INSPIRED YOU THE MOST TO CHOOSE THIS CAREER PATH?

The Final Fantasy franchise was a big influence growing up. Especially with the unique art style of Final Fantasy IX. This is when I began my path to wanting to create rich immersive worlds with great storytelling.

WHAT VIDEO GAME CHARACTER BEST EMBODIES YOU?

Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy 7 as she is a caring and optimistic character for her team.

WHY DO YOU DESERVE A GREATER SHARE OF SPACE IN THE YEARBOOK?

All of my teammates deserve equal share of the year book! Achieving a great deal over the years. I have art directed two projects which were positively received during the Rookies 2019 and 2020, with our final project also receiving positive feedback so far. All due to excellent teamwork.
