About

I specialise in 2D animation and film direction with strong storytelling and editing skills. I am also a musician experienced in sound recording and sound design. I am looking for projects with an interesting background that focus on creative storytelling. I would also be thrilled to work with musicians to help them add a visual dimension to their songs.

If you are in Edinburgh from the 27 July until the 28 October head out to the Botanic Gardens and see some of my prints which are part of the Shoreline exhibition. I recommend checking out what the people involved in the Shoreline Project are working towards as well.
