Recent freelance work includes being Lead Animator on a Rankin Films short, sole Editor and VFX artist on music promos for Universal Ireland, and GQ.

I also direct and film my own short films, being selected as a finalist in Raindance and JamesonEmpire's film competitions, I have my own camera(dslr), lenses, mic, and shoulder rig for filming.

I'm an easy going, dedicated, and enthusiastic worker, committed to doing what's necessary to get a project completed on time and to a high standard. I work well within a team but am also capable of taking charge or being left to my own devices. I'm always willing to contribute ideas and enjoy working on new projects.
