ABOUT ME:-
I first started using Bryce, then VUE XStream to map the Burma / Thailand landscape for a personal project.
After 3 years, I finally decided to go to The Academy Of Interactive Education, to get a firm grounding in all the software mentioned above.
I graduated in Dec 2011 from AIE with an Advanced Diploma in 3D, Animation and SFX.
I as one of 12 people chosen in December 2011 to attend the rotoscoping course at Animal Logic.
I have many videos, from Golf Course Fly Throughs to Historical Documentaries.

After many years in IT. and Music, it's good to find a "New Frontier", since both previous professions have become very
staid.

I hope to tell the stories of the brave men that defended our country,on The THAI-BURMA RAILWAY, in sceenplay, book or animation !
I am a registered researcher at both The Australian War Memorial and The National Archives in Sydney.

I am actively looking for work in the Animation industry.
