"I really enjoy designing and making things"
Although comparatively new to 3D printing I’m no stranger to the world of 3D design and 3D model creation. I’ve spent the last 20 years working in the 3D animation industry for film and television, creating and bringing to life all sorts of characters, models and set pieces for television shows, commercials and interactive media. 3D modelling is now as natural to me as drawing or hand writing.
I started this journey into the world of 3D printing because I felt I needed a change, a change that would lead me to new outlets and avenues for expressing my deep creative and time earned 3D modelling and digital design skills.
I enjoy creating beautiful but functional things, be it an accessory for my camera or a character for a film, it needs to be just right and I spend many hours testing and printing to ensure the models I design are not only aesthetically pleasing but function exactly as intended.
