Designing and creating is my passion, I look at everything in everyday life to gain inspiration and motivation to try to construct my own ideas and design concepts. I have been working in art and design since 2009 from my secondary school and throughout sixth form, which influenced my decision to pursue a career in the design industry. I have recently graduated from Northumbria University in BSc(Hons) Computer Animation and Digital SFX.
