About me

20190608_195547.jpg

I have 19 years of experience working as a prop maker and sculptor working for the film, television, theatre, promotional and events industries. During this time, I have worked on a very wide variety of projects ranging in scale from small hero props for films, to enormous centrepieces for sell out events at venues such as Wembley Arena. Based close to Gatwick in Surrey I have excellent transport links to London and the South East.

 

At the start of my career I was extremely lucky to have  my first work experience in the film industry working on Harry Potter The Chamber of Secrets in the props department. Since then I have gone on to have some amazing jobs working on productions such as Snow White, Captain Marvel 2, The Witches, The Secret Garden, The Da Vinci Code, Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy to name a few. I have also worked on a wide range promotional jobs for The Horror Channel, Sky GOT,  Netflix Stranger Things. 

I can work independently or as part of a team to create, fabricate and finish wow-factor products that transform 2D concepts into a 3D reality. I am also comfortable coordinating and managing others, working to produce high quality products.

As a highly skilled and capable maker I am confident working with a very wide range of materials, techniques and equipment including; sculpting, modelling, mouldmaking, casting, fabricating, painting, finishing, upholstery, leather work, set building and dressing, life casting, CAD CAM including CNC equipment, working with timber and associated machinery, metal working including welding (Qualified to British Standards).

I also have good metal working skills as I spend much of my spare time fabricating and welding parts for my classic cars.

I have leadership experience working within education. I have taught Design and Technology and Product Design up to Advanced Level. This gave me an excellent understanding of health and safety, as well as First Aid at Work qualifications.

I relish a challenge and I am passionate about creatively realising project briefs and creating a sense of wonder and magic when the end projects are delivered.
