Personal Statement

I am a conscientious dedicated worker and my goal is to be a successful video game designer. My speciality is in CGI. I have a strong background within theatre production and film making giving me an advantage when it comes to certain factors such as character movement, lighting, sound and visual composition.
I created a promotional video for a recruitment site where I was highly praised for the quality and production speed. I have also collaborated with fellow designers for a project set by "EA Bright Light" studios and an animation project set by animator, Ian Goldstone.
