ABOUT

I am a Game Designer and 3D Artist who is currently participating in the Launchpad incubation program at Falmouth University. 

In Summer 2015 I graduated with a first class degree in Game Design and Production Management from Abertay University. During my final year at Abertay my honours project received the Design in Action 'Prize for Commercial Potential'. Shortly after graduating I worked as a Junior Designer at ISO Design.  Over the years I have accrued significant professional experience in Maya, Unreal Engine, Unity, Substance Painter, Photoshop and numerous other programs and tools.

I’m always eager to face new challenges and am constantly motivated by the desire to create new and unique interactive experiences.
