Production Work


I am currently based in London, working on developing my art practice as well as working as a Visting Lecturer at UCL The Bartlett School of Architecture and as a Visiting Research Fellow in the computing department at Goldsmiths, University of London.

From 2010 to 2015 I was the Product Manager for Katana at The Foundry, Europe's leading company developing software for visual effects and animation, with clients that I was working with including Pixar, ILM, MPC, DreamWorks Animation and Double Negative.

Prior to joining The Foundry I was Head of Computer Graphics at Framestore, where I was in charge of software development and helping the company transition to ways of working appropriate for a large visual effects and animation studio. I was also directly involved on a number of productions including Avatar and The Tale of Despereaux.

I returned to London in April 2006 after nearly five years working in California at DreamWorks Animation and ESC Entertainment.

At ESC, the company set up by Warner Bros and the Wachowskis to produce the key digital effects for the Matrix sequels, I was Head of Computer Graphics. As well a heading up the department and acting as a the CG Supervisor for the inside the Matrix shots for 'Matrix: Revolutions', I also personally did most of the development work for the digital rain system that was used throughout the final climactic sequence where Neo goes back into the Matrix to fight Smith.

Before leaving to live in the US, I was Head of 3D Animation at Framestore, and won Emmy awards for supervising the computer generated effects on 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'The Odyssey' as well as working on numerous other projects including 'Walking with Dinosaurs', 'Dinotopia', 'Lost in Space', 'Fairytale (A True Story)', 'Arabian Nights' and 'Jason and the Argonauts'.

Going back even further I did most of the 3D animation for 'The Day Today', including the manically crazy title sequence...
