Environment artist / level design
On the Move, United Kingdom

Summary

Entirely self taught, I possess the ability to pick things up quickly and learn on the job.

I acted as the environment artist and level designer for indie game Tangiers, on which I designed modular art assets, textures, and placed props, lighting and particle effects. I've also worked freelance designing background props, levels, art assets for a handful of other projects and prototypes including work for indie game companies such as "Crows Crows Crows", "Beardo Games" and "Horizon Heavy Industries".

I enjoy building high quality scenes that tell a story and am always learning new skills and techniques.
