I'm a versatile Environment Artist with a fine art background in traditional sculpting. I have strong skills in organic and hard surface modelling, level building kit design, high quality prop creation, photogrammetry and PBR texturing. I've gained professional experience by working as a paid, intern Environment Artist for 8 weeks after my 2nd year at Escape Studios. Other than an Environment Artist, during my degree course, I've gained experience in art directing, producing for games and have been a student ambassador working on screen industry events. I'm taking initiative, very organised and professional in my work. I always try to push visual quality and love solving problems.

DESCRIBE A CHALLENGE THAT YOU HAD TO OVERCOME IN YOUR GROUP PROJECTS.
Because of the lockdown, we had to start working from home without proper infrastructure in place and on top of that we lost a person from our team and another one struggled so much that she couldn't contribute a lot. That meant no producer for the whole team. In the first week of lockdown, I've helped set up a Perforce server to be able to work as a team again. Then discussed my concerns about no producer with our tutors to ask feedback and opinion, then initiated a team meeting about it. With the team we've discussed these issues, rearranged responsibilities and cut down on certain assets to accommodate the new team composition.
WHICH GAME INSPIRED YOU THE MOST TO CHOOSE THIS CAREER PATH?
Heroes of Might and Magic 5 (and 3, but that was 2D and I was too young to think about careers)
WHAT VIDEO GAME CHARACTER BEST EMBODIES YOU?
Difficult question. Could be an undead warlock from WoW. They have a dark sense of humour, mostly misunderstood, somewhat scary at first but generally nice guys. :D
WHY DO YOU DESERVE A GREATER SHARE OF SPACE IN THE YEARBOOK?
I don't. We're all equal. Give everyone an equal opportunity. Thanks.
