Hi there! I’m a freelance animator and motion graphics designer with a love of characters and strong, bold design. I’m currently based in Cardiff, UK. 

You can view my CV/resume here

I’ve been working as an animator and editor for nearly 15 years now. During this time I’ve worked across a huge breadth of projects, for all kinds of clients ranging from advertising agencies to charities, independent films to the BBC and beyond. I love working with people, so I’m very happy in a team or a client-facing role, but I’m also just as comfortable in my studio with a podcast on.

Most of my work is done in the Adobe suite - predominantly After Effects and Premiere - but I also use Cinema4D for 3D work and TVPaint for frame-by-frame animation. Within After Effects I use DUIK, Joysticks and Sliders and Rubberhose for rigging. 

I began my career as an editor and still take on editing work in addition to (or alongside) my animation projects and I’m very experienced in both roles. I don’t promote my editing work as much these days, but I have found that clients increasingly need hybrid editor/animator freelancers so this combination of skillsets has been pretty handy.

In addition to my creative work, I run an annual 48 hour animation challenge called Quick Draw and have mentored young animators for Screenskills, BFI and The Crewing Company.

Give me a shout to discuss rates and availability and hopefully we can work together.
