ABOUT ME

I LOVE ANIMATION! and I have been working for 12+ years in roles such as HEAD OF STORY, STORYBOARD SUPERVISOR and STORY ARTIST in the animation industry. Prior to this, I spent many more years directing, writing and animating my own independent shortfilms.

 

Currenly, I'm working for ILLUMINATION ENTERTAINMENT (USA). Previously, I worked for 8+ years at AARDMAN ANIMATIONS (UK).
 

In 2018, I was nominated for an Emile Award  for ‘Best Storyboarding’ as part of ‘Early Man’ film story team. Recently, I have been HEAD OF STORY for the Aardman/Netflix project ‘ROBIN ROBIN’ (Coming out in Nov 2021).

Also, In 2005 I gained a ‘MA in Animation’ at the Royal College of Art in London. As for the future, I’m also occupied in what I feel is my true passion: scriptwriting and directing for animation. I have several ideas I'm developing in the hope that some day they'll become feature films and I'll direct them.
