View Resume

At a young age I always took an interest in art and design, especially in games. I would sit in school talking about how I would change current popular games for the better, whether that be the narrative or how I different environment design would suit the world. I carried this passion through school and into collage, finishing a game design course with 3 Distinction*.
However I made a concious to not go into university. I personally felt as a creative that university was the wrong path to take. I thought I could gain so much more by working a retail job whilst picking up free lance work where possible and developing my skills at home.
The best attribute an artist can have is a hunger & desire to get better, for me it would have been the easy for me to be at the SGS and think to myself, ‘yeah this will do for a 19 year old’. But I still went home and worked on personal projects to improve further, learning new software, or techniques. I take a lot of pride that as a young lad I went my own way rather than following the crowd and went with my gut feeling of what suited me best. I knew for a fact if I worked hard and developed good habits & work ethic I could get into the Games industry.
Please do not read this and mistaken this for arrogance, I am aware that I am young, and have shortcomings, but I always work towards bettering myself every day. And I truly believe given a chance I can shine in a studio.
