I am a moving-image artist/freelancer based in Berlin, Germany.

Before relocating to Berlin from New Zealand in 2013 I was employed full time as an animation director at Toybox, a post-production house situated in central Auckland. At Toybox I had the opportunity to take the directorial lead on projects, I also did a fair bit of generalist work. This included FX supervising, animation 3d and 2d, compositing and editing.

Before that I was born in Wellington, New Zealand. I grew up, went to school, dropped in and out of Art School, did a lot of music (colony, repeater) and even more cafe (brazil 1995-2007), a twist of Theatre (stronghold) and finally lashings of film work.

Tools:

My current 3d weapon of choice is Maxon’s C4D. In 2D the Adobe suite is one ring to the rule them all. With After effects and Premiere being my most used.

I fly two PC’s – a 6 core i7 for speed and a dual 8 core xeon for rendering.

My shooting kit consists of a Kinefinty Kinemini 4k with a Walimex lens set along with associated and necessary bits and bobs.
