I am a 3D Animator with a wide knowledge of the Animation pipeline. As a visual individual, my interest in Animation comes mainly from a personal desire and enjoyment of storytelling through imagery. While studying to become an Animator I have also learned about other disciplines that are key in the animation industry including modelling, texturing, rigging, etc. I enjoy capturing the environment around me through photography and sketching to expand my visual library and develop a story-generating mindset. After graduating, I am looking forward to starting in an Animator position at a studio where I can continue making meaningful content.

Describe yourself in 5 words.

Resilient, Quirky, Curious, Optimistic and Amiable.

What are your hobbies and interests?

My hobbies include trips to art galleries and museums. I love seeing the detail in the artwork but also finding the pieces that are not finished which show their foundations. I also like traveling and love to think that I will always discover new inspiration and stories in every place.

What job position would excite you the most to start your career with?

To start my professional career in the Animation industry I am hopeful to be able to start as a Junior Animator. A position where I can apply the skills I have built working on various group projects and studying at university while also acquiring the necessary experience to become a better animator and progressing in my career.

Tell us an achievement you're proud of.

One thing I am proud of is our graduating short film 'Malloe'. It was truly a journey to work on our final project, luckily we all worked together very hard and efficiently to finish our short film on time at a high standard. It is by far the most beautiful project I have worked on while studying here at Escape Studios and can't wait to start working on other awesome projects.

Would you rather be a wizard, Jedi or superhero? and why?

I would be a wizard. In legends and fairy stories, a wizard is a person who has magic powers and, to me, animating feels just like that, bringing an unanimated object to life is truly magical just as Mickey Mouse brought to life the Magical Brooms.

Which animated movie inspired you the most to choose this career path?

Although it might sound like a cliché, the animated movie that inspired me the most was Shrek. I remember that, as a child, I owned the DVD and I would watch it multiple times to the point my parents would hide it from me. I am not sure if it was a special edition but I remember truly exploiting that DVD. I remember watching every bit of content from it and one of the contents was called 'The Tech of Shrek' which was a kind of behind-the-scenes where they showed technical problems they had to overcome and a 'Progression Reel' where I was able to discover what was happening behind the film I liked so much.

What was your crowning moment of your time at Escape?

For me, it was very special to get 4th place in 'The Eleven Second Club' competition in Year 2. The reason is because I was only just starting to learn how to animate and it was encouraging for me to see what I had achieved when I was just starting on my journey in Animation. This made me want to keep working hard to continue making work I would feel proud of.
