Summary

I have just graduated from University of Derby where I was studying Computer Games Modelling And Animation.

I am a self starter and fast learner, passionate about game art and video games in general. I specialize in Environment Art, and I always aim to create environments that have purpose and tell a story, to the best of my technical and artistic abilities.

Outside of games art, I enjoy gaming, programming, sketching, nature, films, music.
