As a young boy I was heavily inspired by the power of make-up effects to transform performers into intriguing and believable characters. Through early exposure to exciting movies heavily laden with fascinating practical effects and endless our of practice I am now a full time freelance professional special effect make-up artist and creature creator. I thoroughly embrace the constantly evolving and learning opportunities that a career in the special effects industry offers. This year I have worked on several feature productions and shorts. I was also fortunate to be invited to demonstrate at the world re-owned London IMATS and have been featured in Make-up Artist Magazine and Warpaint.
I have a broad and fascinating working background. As a Leading Physical Training Instructor within the Royal Navy, I travelled the world extensively and embraced all walks of life, cultures and beliefs.
I love the enthusiasm and creativity of the film industry focusing specifically on Special Make-up Effects, Prosthetics and Creature Design and am excited to be a part of it.
