I’m a South African motion designer with an extensive history working within advertising agencies and studios, now freelancing in the awesome and vibrant city of Cape Town, South Africa.
I’m a digital native with a love for art, animation, graphic design, sound design and creative programming. I spent a lot of my youth making small games and visual experiments with code, while studying multimedia design and creative communications I discovered the power of After Effects and 3D animation software and saw how it blended so much of what I really enjoy into one, that’s when I knew I wanted to be a motion designer.
I’ve had the privilege of being able to work alongside some great teams of creatives in advertising agencies around Cape Town and have worked on loads of really interesting and challenging projects for some great brands, some of these challenges drove me into the technical aspects of video production where I’ve found a passion for automation and tool development within the animation field. I love solving problems and yearn for creative challenges.
