CV (Curriculum Vitae) / Résumé

Lighting and shading in computer animation is the area I specialise in, but I have also been working as a CG generalist.

I believe I can use my skills gained as a fine artist in creating interesting and imaginative work, and would relish the opportunity to further develop my skills, especially if it has the added benefit of working with industry leaders in their field.

The software I use most often are Softimage, ICE, Syflex, Lagoa, Mental Ray, Arnold, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premier, however I am also happy working in 3D Studio Max, Maya, Nuke and Python.

I am also skilled in HTML, AutoCAD, Dreamweaver, Flash, Illustrator and Shopcreator applications.
