Master of Arts 3D Computer Animation

I ventured away from the high-paced animation industry to complete my formal educational training. I achieved a Master of Arts degree in 3D Computer Animation with distinction at Bournemouth University.  During my studies I lead and managed several teams, helping bring their understanding of visual effects to a level necessary for them to gain entry into the industry.  All of the team members that I helped mentor, many of which were brand new to the art-form, are now working within the visual effects industry.
