Brief profile

I am extremely passionate about Digital Image Manipulation and Retouching. I have geared my education, internships and work experience placements towards a career in this exciting and thriving industry. Whether I am given a brief to adhere to or asked to generate a concept/proposal my approach remains the same ambitious, clean and professional. I have acquired a BA Single Honours in Digital Design Suite at Canterbury Christ Church University. In conjunction with this I have also obtained a Foundation Degree in Broadcast and Interactive Television studied at K College Tonbridge. I feel this degree has equipped me with transferrable skills necessitated for the work place these include working to tight deadlines, hard working, good communication skills, persistency and problem solving. I have undertaken various work placements and internships including running around Soho, editing various mediums including music videos, promotional videos, a TV studio programme, filming football league matches under floodlights as well as directing videos for directors, this exhibits that I adopt creative flair, can stay calm under pressure and be independent when desired. The work placements and internships taught me how to problem solve and think logically, all of which I believe are essential qualities in the work place. What makes me stand out from the crowd is that I will never give up on a job I will always find a way to make it work. In my spare time I teach myself programmes like Houdini (3d application), Final Cut Pro, After Effects and Adobe Photoshop, which I am very passionate about. I have my own deviant art account, which I use as a basis for promoting my work online as well as obtaining some critical feedback to enable me to progress as an accomplished artist. I am a very conscientious, hard working, dedicated and enthusiastic team member whom I feel would benefit any company.
