|I was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1961.
After attending the Glasgow School of Art, I moved to Harrogate, North Yorkshire, as an illustrator and electric guitar repairer.
I ended up in advertising for a few years, then I took some time off to build and photograph practical miniature models and take
a computer course at a local college.
This led to several years in the games industry, and as well as character and concept design, I built, texture painted and lighted 3D
I formed my own CG design company in 1999, and closed that down after a successful year to work for another games company as
a concept designer and cut sequence director.
I moved to the states in 2001, and worked for Digital Domain as a previs, 2D, 3D and lighting artist on several movies and commercials
over a five year period.
Having grown tired of L.A. and movie VFX production, I'm now back in the UK as a university teacher/consultant and freelance image maker.
