    iSiteTV creates product videos and interactive media solutions. For CG videos I create 3D models or use supplied CAD data of the manufactures products to achieve stunning finished renders and allow clients to gain complete control over how their product looks, moves, and even the environment it sits in.

Hobbies and Interests

Rock Climbing

I also do indoor and outdoor Rock Climbing and Bouldering.

Obstacle Course Races

Finished my first Marathon and Ultra Marathon OCR in 2018.

Scuba Diver

I'm a qualified PADI Scuba Diver up to Rescue Diver level and am currently working towards getting underwater Photography and Videography qualifications.

Travel

I love to travel, and constantly end up taking more photos of the places I visit that my memory cards can store.

Freelance CG Artist

I have 14 years work experience as a CG Artist, predominantly working in advertising for big blue chip clients creating product videos and advertisements.

With a broad knowledge of the entire 3D pipeline I can apply my experience to a wide variety of CG tasks across a range of projects with a thorough understanding of most CG techniques and technologies.

Whether it is modelling, texturing, environments, lighting, animation, FX, or setting up simulations, to 
demonstrate high-end CG.

I have worked on projects as an Artist and as a Project Manager communicating with both clients and colleagues to keep projects to deadlines and within budget.

Interested in Full-time, Contract, or Temporary work.

Modelling

I create complex models with a low-poly workflow, from box modelling to photogrammetry, and I'm currently working on learning procedural modelling in Houdini.

Post Production

Good understanding of compositing and post-processing principles working with render passes. I predominantly use After Effects and Premiere, but starting to learn Nuke and Da Vinci.

Problem Solving

I enjoy proactively developing ideas to better the project and solve problems

Video Editing

Composite 3D animation passes with infographic overlays, grading and colour correction, combined with music and sound effects to brand guildlines.

Photography

I have a sharp eye for detail and composition in photography using my DSLR and the Adobe Creative Suite. Able to shoot great pics, videos, gifs and other content at home, or out and about.

Animation

The majority of my previous work is based around camera and product animation, but am now developing my skill set towards real-time animation for AR/VR applications.
