I’m an award-winning (whateverthatmeans) Animation Director who refuses to write in the third person.
At present I function as the Lead Creative at Texture, a small production company in the heart of London. We write, conceptualize, design, film and animate. We also, as part of the job, listen to a lot really bad, mind-hogging songs and carry them home in hums (for the despair of our loved ones).
In my spare time I write good ideas into crappy scripts, which I then re-write until they are half-decent. So far I’ve finished two feature films, half-a-dozen TV pilots and more than a few short films. I got a couple of them produced, but nothing you'd have seen. Yet.
I’ve also probably watched any TV show you can think of. Twice.
I "sound design" my every move through weird noises, I talk to myself constantly no matter who’s around me and I think I’m not immensely fat only because my Restless Leg Syndrome burns calories faster than my shitty diet is able to accumulate them.
Other than that I’m completely normal (whateverthatmeans).
