personal profile

I am an ambitious graduate with a First Class degree, specialising in Visual Effects and Post Production, during which I received the Dean’s Award and the Programme Leader’s Award. I am currently doing a Postgraduate degree in Digital Innovations and working as a VFX Tutor at Confetti (Nottingham Trent University creative campus).
I possess relevant professional experience gained during a traineeship at the company of the former Malta Film Commissioner, where I worked on projects for companies, such as HSBC, Dove, NYX, Vodafone, Surf. Having worked full-time whilst still writing my dissertation, I am able to work to tight deadlines and balance multiple competing priorities.
As a result of the traineeship and the freelance projects, I am self-motivated, hard-working, and always willing to learn new skills. I have developed an excellent eye for detail while working on government projects, which involved strict brand guidelines.
My objective is to further my ability as a Houdini artist, in particular in abstract motion design.
