My career in CGI started when I decided to learn Maya, at the time I thought I would go into TV and Film as I have always been a fan of CGI work in films.
After my intensive 12-week course learning modelling and VFX I took several runner positions for a few VFX companies, but I decided it was not what I was looking for and went down the Architecture route instead.I became a Document Controller for Arup Associates in 2008 but during the recession I was made redundant. But it was not too bad as I luckily was put forward for a position to design wine racks for Sorrells Wine Racks based in Wickford.It was at Sorrells I learnt about Autodesk Inventor and was able to produce drawings and CGIs using Maya.
In 2010 I decided to go travelling and whilst living in Melbourne I found a few freelance opportunities, one working for another Wine Cellar company called Cellar Creations.One day I realised I did not have to always produce CGIs for Wine Cellar companies and began approaching different areas such as Kitchen Companies, Cinema companies, Furniture companies and Sauna Companies.
I moved back to England in 2012 and continued to freelance until I started my first permanent position at Navigation Suites based in Witham in 2017. I left Nav in 2018 and continued to freelance till this day.I am grateful I have had some wonderful opportunities to produce some exciting CGI work and I am looking forward to the future.
