I'm a senior 2D animator, illustrator, director and designer with more than 14 years industry experience. I'm accustomed to leading and supervising animation projects for TV and online.

I'm available for freelance work - animation / direction / illustration / character & production design either with production companies, or directly with agencies and clients. Happy to work in house or remote with my kit or yours. Big projects or small.

I'm based at Red Knuckles' studio in Shoreditch. We collaborate frequently on mixed media projects - I look after the 2D and they look after the 3D.

My clients in the UK, Europe and the US include Leo Burnett, McCann, DDB, VCCP, Saatchi & Saatchi, W+K, Ogilvy, Capital One, O2, Kwik-Fit, P&G, Unilever, FoxADHD, MTV, Dark Horse Comics, More Than, Disney, Vodafone, Microsoft, Visit England, Total, 3, Ebay etc. Production companies I've worked for include Not To Scale, Passion-Pictures, Golden Wolf, Th1ng, Mummu, Picnic, Red Knuckles, Jelly and Bare Films.

I'm fully Cintiq'd up, but my good old pencil still does a lot of mileage.
