I am a forward thinking individual, who loves challenges and pressure. I have a passion for baking and creating photorealistic art, from painting to 3D digital art. With a huge love for sculpting animals and humans. I would like to start as a Groom Artist or as a 3D modeller; they require knowledge in anatomy as well as an eye for detail to ensure everything is correct. My experiences in other industries such as retail have given me proven skills required for working in a team during which I developed a proactive nature to seek opportunities everywhere.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB TO START YOUR CAREER WITH?
My dream job to start my career would be as a Modeller which would allow me to explore
as many possible disciplines in the field. I already have a huge passion for organic/creature sculpting and would like to further pursue this given the chance.
IF YOU WERE AN ANIMAL, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU BE?
I would be the Ebony Falcon… J/K. I would be a Red Crowned Crane. This is because they were the first birds I ever saw in a painting and I grew to love seeing them. Birds are also animals that symbolise freedom to me.
WHAT THREE THINGS WOULD YOU TAKE TO A DESERT ISLAND?
I would take a Swiss Army Knife, a torch and the book "The Count of Monte Cristo". The Swiss Army Knife is utilitarian, a torch because I just don’t like the dark plus its a good way
of reading in the dark.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?
In 5 years, I expect to see myself in a mid-level position or higher. I would like to be experienced and be able to lead a small team, if applicable, and have been creating my own blog dedicated to imparting 3D VFX skills.
IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE WHAT WOULD IT BE?
If my life was a movie it would be '3 Idiots', a Bollywood film about 3 students portraying lives in University. Where it's hard to survive obstacles but we must remain strong to achieve our goals despite the way society dictates to live your lives.
WOULD YOU RATHER BE A WIZARD, JEDI OR SUPERHERO? AND WHY?
I would rather be a wizard because I have always admired the way magic can enrich our lives, it doesn’t benefit one individual, rather the whole society. It is an occupation one works hard to reach with multiple disciplines, whilst the jedi and superhero are stuck with their singular role.
WHY DO YOU DESERVE A GREATER SHARE OF SPACE IN
THE YEAR BOOK?
I deserve a greater share because I am a driven individual, who has wholeheartedly plunged himself into the world of VFX. I have put in the hours into learning from 9am-10pm in university, pushing myself to learn my craft to the best of my ability.
