Showreel 2020

Screen Shot 2020-04-23 at 10.56.41 AM

Hello Internet. If you’re looking for help creating visual content, you’ve come to the right place.

I am one of those infernal “slashers” – animator/director/illustrator/writer/motion graphics designer/humanist. I like to think of myself as a master of all trades; master to none!

Click here or on the image above to see my latest reel.

Please get in touch for all your animation needs, including writing, directing, art direction, illustration, storyboarding and motion graphics. I’m highly proficient in all Adobe CC software, including Animate, and I have also been using Maya for the last couple of years.

I am based in Sydney, Australia, but I’m very comfortable and experienced in working remotely.

Here’s some of my recent work…


THE AMAZING TRUE STORY OF HOW BABIES ARE MADE (2019)

Recently I co-directed a 20-minute 2D animation called The Amazing True Story of How Babies Are Made. This project, produced by CJZ, was co-directed by Jonathan Nix and based on the book by Fiona Katauskas.

Babies won the 2019 ATOM Award for Best Animation, and you can read more about it – and view a trailer – on its official website, here.


CRASH COMIC

In 2019 I was commissioned to illustrate a series of comics for CASA (the Civil Aviation Safety Authority), based on true stories.

Here is the first comic (my illustration, not the full layout):
