On some days I'm lead designer on a project, on others I’m a storyboarder or animator, and sometimes all of them at once.

Hend and Lamiaa

We won a competition to paint a statue for the Gromit Unleashed 2 arts trail, which took place in Bristol during summer 2018.


I love bringing big ideas to life. My career as an animator is a direct result of doing the Animation course at UWE Bristol - I'm doing my dream job!


We broke a world record. I worked on the world-record breaking Aardman and Nokia Gulp! project producing a film on the largest ever stop-motion animation set.


I’m a junior production co-ordinator at Gutsy Animations, working on the new Moomin series. I work closely with our team in the art department, mainly with location, character and prop design.



I capture every moment. I embraced the opportunity to work with the BBC at the Radio 4 More Than Words festival.

Wildlife Filmmaking


I got to work with, and learn from, the best wildlife documentary professionals from the BBC Natural History Unit.
