I am 35 years old and graduated in 1999 from the University of Wolverhampton, England. I am now working in Framestore CFC as Texture artist for the feature films Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and Batman: The Dark knight, using Bodypaint3D and Photoshop to create hi resolution texture maps, and Zbrush for generating displacement maps.

Before joining Framestor CFC, I spent 3 years working as VFX artist for TV commercial projects. My jobs cover most of the areas, from modeling, texturing, shading, rigging, dynamics, animation, 3d tracking and compositings. In addition I had been supervising some of the VFX for local TV series and programmes. I have been using Maya for five years and I am also very comfortable in writing MEL scripts for daily production usage. My other software skills includes 3DSMax, Bodypaint3D, Zbrush, Realflow, Syflex Photoshop and AfterEffects.

I had also spent a few years both in part time and full time working as a comic artist and graphic designer. In addition, I have a year of experience in a London based game company working as 3D Artist, responsible for creating 3D models as well as using Photoshop to create custom low and high resolution textures. My main subjects in university are Electronic Media and Multimedia.
