Senior Technician Digital Arts (Animation and Games)
I have provided technical support for BA (Hons) Animation and Games Art since 2004, making me the longest serving member of staff on the course. Being tied to the course since its infancy gives unique insight as I've seen the course content, staff and students grow and evolve over time.
I'm responsible for the software, equipment and IT used and also get to research new ideas and practices including 2D/3D/StopMotion/Motion Capture/Pixel Art/VR and gaming.
An unexpected perk of my job is that I get to provide a wide array of voices for student animations. It's something that I love doing and is a great way to assist the students making the best work they can.
Away from work, I'm hugely into gaming in all forms: PC and console, board games and RPGs. I have far too many of each, but not enough time to play them.
I'm also Mac OS X certified.
