I make mainly 3D content to display in real time game engines for mobile games platforms.

I have 12 years professional experience modelling, texturing and rigging and am very proficient in the high poly to low poly game asset work-flow.

This role has given me an opportunity to lead a small art team and has involved planning and managing sprints, imputing into the creative direction of the product, helping to define the art pipe line and interdisciplinary liaison with design and code. I have also have to communicate and manage outsource artists.
