Skills: I have a comprehensive knowledge of Photographic media both analogue and digital having majored in Photography for two years. I have experience with Web design and graphic design.

These programmes are: • XSI: Softimage • Dreamweaver CS2-CS4 • Adobe Photoshop CS2-CS4 • Flash CS4 • Adobe Indesign • Adobe Illustrator • Final Cut Pro In addition to this I own Zbrush and am in the process of teaching myself to use it, through the use of online tutorials and am integrating it into my digital work flow.

Through the photographs that I have taken I have learned a lot about the art of being a documentary photographer as well as a critical observer. Attaining a number of firsts in my final year of undergraduate study I proved that I had attained both technical and conceptual mastery of the medium. I have strengthened my people skills in my working interaction with a wide variety of people, especially foreign tourists and visiting academics. I have also proved myself to be trustworthy by delivering people including young children to their destinations safely. As a contemplative individual I always consider the society in which we live attempt to see things from different people’s perspectives. I am sensitive to other’s needs. I am a very sociable person who enjoys teamwork and collaboration. I value honesty and reliability and try very hard to live up to these ideals myself. I enjoy the opportunity to be creative in a variety of ways for example through artistic expression. While having a strong conceptual basis I am also interested in commercial branding and character design. I aspire to acquire substantial experience in the animation, design industry which will ultimately allow me to run my own animation/ design company. I enjoy reading and research as well as physical activity with a particular passion for martial arts.
