Personal Statement


I’m looking for job that challenges me to my full potential in any position to the fullest of my capabilities. I aim to accomplish my tasks with efficiency and dedication as I pride myself on work ethic.

Throughout my job experience I always strive to improve upon the work done by my predecessors. Learning and building on the structure of existing protocol to better the quality that I can deliver. I am hard working and will do my best to proof my trustworthiness and capability to fulfill my obligations.

In the ever changing world we live in I find it is essential to connect with people, both socially and professionally. This prompted me to grab any job to further this goal. I live for results and to achieve beyond my own weakness. To stand back at the end of the day and say: "This is what i have done!"

Career Objective


As a creative sector graduate with focus on 3D asset creation and animation I am well versed in Autodesk's 3D Max, Softimage and Mudbox as well as Blender. I also wish to further my learning in Autodesk Maya,  Zbrush, Substance Designer & Painter and Unreal Engine.

Complementary to this I have learned to use several Adobe solutions to better my quality of work. This in turn has given me opportunity to use my creative skills in conjunction with my problem solving in both web design and photography.

With job experience gained while studying I have developed greater interpersonal skills , understanding how a business is run and work ethic.
