I'm a prop maker & graphic artist from South Africa, living in Brighton.

After a 10 year long career in graphic design and a lifelong passion for art, I’ve decided to mix things up, get my hands dirty & dive headfirst into a new career in prop making & special effects. As a child of the 80s who grew up in the 90s I enjoy the ‘old school’ film-making techniques the most, with a particular enthusiasm and appreciation for practical effects and stop-motion animation.

I’m now chasing my long-time dream of working in the film industry.

I am currently studying a foundation degree in prop making and special effects at Northbrook College in the UK & In my spare time I work on my own art projects, while keeping an eye out for any production that could use another pair of hands.
