ABOUT

I've had a varied career since I graduated from Middlesex University with a Graphic Design degree in 1993, working as a concept artist and designer, storyboard artist, director, illustrator, production designer and art department in film, television, commercials, pop promos, videogames and events.
I started as a runner on a TV show, working my way upwards into various art departments on commercials, promos and TV until by the late 90s I was an art director and production designer. Around this time my work was beginning to diversify - I was doing storyboards for commercials and advertising agencies as well as visualising concepts for events and parties. During the early 00s I was also working with animatronic designer Neal Scanlan doing concept and character design on kids TV shows and movie projects. 
By 2007 I’d been storyboarding for 10 years and worked on hundreds of ads, some TV drama and a few small features. That year, one of my clients I’d been boarding viral ads for - The Viral Factory - asked me to direct an animated ad for Samsung. This got over 10 million views at the time and earned me a D&AD Yellow Pencil. I went on to direct various other weird online ads with The Viral Factory and was subsequently represented as a commercials director with Outsider in 2012. However this career path was short-lived as in the summer of 2013 I joined Neal Scanlan and the Creature FX department on Star Wars: The Force Awakens as a Concept Designer.
Over the last 9 years I’ve gone on to design creatures, aliens and droids for all five new Star Wars films plus the Rogue One spin-off TV show Andor. Away from Star Wars I’ve also got to concept characters, monsters and props for Artemis Fowl, The Glass Onion, Overlord and 10 Cloverfield Lane. And since 2019, I’ve got back into storyboarding again, including working on Venom 2, an aborted Tomb Raider sequel, The Meg 2 and Raised By Wolves.
