My earliest memory of stop motion animation was in 1985; Ghostbusters, when the terror dogs break out of the gargoyles and Sigourney Weaver gets possessed.  Being a three year old this resulted in nightmares, a fear of dogs, hallucinations, general terror and not being able to walk past a pub at the end of the high street as there was a bear with glowing red eyes mounted on top of it- not dissimilar to a terror dog. Suffice to say, I was petrified.

However, I do believe this experience is one of the reasons I am attracted to film making, and animation in particular.

During an education dominant in creativity, I worked on a feature at 17 in the art department and was immediately charmed by the industry.

I went on to do a degree in Fine Art in London and after graduating I freelanced as a photographer for music magazines and have had work published worldwide in the music, fashion, film and TV industries.

I got to a point where I felt sidetracked from the film industry and was unsatisfied with the nature of magazines and TV, so I attended an open day at the NFTS where I was shown around the wondrous animation department, and was instantly hooked.
