Personal

About Me

Being creative makes me immensely happy; it doesn’t matter what it is.
I’m happiest when creating, imagining and designing things. I’m very visually driven; I love to draw and visualise my ideas, and I have a habit of getting excited when my skills are invested in a good idea or when I see what I’m currently working on come together.
I’m 24, a gamer and am not afraid to admit that I’m a bit of a geek. I’m unashamedly addicted to almost anything Science Fiction related and I’ve been playing computer games since I was Six; my first game was Sonic the Hedgehog and my first console was a Sega Saturn.

Hobbies

  • An eclectic listener of music. I enjoy listening to a wide variety of music from a multitude of different genres; from orchestral film, television and game soundtracks through to Pop/Rock classics, Electronica, Dubstep and many more.
  • A hobbyist artist. I enjoy drawing, designing and sketching my ideas using pencil and paper and also developing them and my style further through the use of digital painting and illustration.
  • A hobbyist musician. I hold a Grade 3 Classical Piano Certification and enjoy playing and composing music in spare time for pleasure, and/or my own projects.
  • Lover of classic TV and Film comedy. Such as Monty Python, Morcambe and Wise, The Two Ronnies, The Naked Gun, Airplane and many more.
