I joined the film industry as a Framestore VFX artist. I've worked on over a dozen feature films, including entries in the Bond, Narnia and Potter franchises, and (BAFTA Visual Effects nominee) The Dark Knight. Over the years I've continued to develop my skills in compositing, VFX supervision and editing.
