About

I'm a Character Designer living in the east of England providing characters, concept work, cartoons and illustration for the entertainment industry.

My clients include Disney Television Animation, Cartoon Network, nWave Digital, Passion Pictures, Barclaycard, Pilot Studios and Prime Focus World.

When I’m not working I’m usually cooking curry and trying to learn the piano whilst fending off two ridiculous cats.
