I have worked professionally in many creative sectors for the last 10+ years, being a creative veteran I have taught to advanced level Design, Art, Sculpture, 3D Modelling/Animations/Rendering and Website design.
I have worked for small companies giving me the rare opportunity not to be pigeon holed, it has also meant I have had to keep up with all the latest techniques and technologies.
I currently run a company specialising in multi-disciplined creative design, from 3D animations to CMS websites, Banners, Adverts, Logos and a whole host of other stuff.
I also have a degree in marketing from Wollongong University Australia, and sell my designs around the world daily. I have joined Udemy to inspire others to fall in love with design.
