Editing:
Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Sony Vegas Pro

My biggest strength and experience is with video editing programs like Adobe Premiere Pro and Sony Vegas Pro which I have used on numerous projects to edit, manipulate and render video and audio at their highest quality. I have also worked with the livestreaming software XSplit Broadcaster to create overlays for creative streams on Twitch.tv.

2D:
Adobe Photoshop, ToonBoom Harmony & Storyboard Pro

Adobe Photoshop is what I primarily use to create 2D digital art which ranges from life drawings to caricatures and have used alternatives like GIMP, Manga Studio, Paint tool SAI and Mischief as well. I animate in ToonBoom Harmony, Storyboard pro and Photoshop.

3D:
Autodesk Maya

I use Autodesk Maya to create 3D models to block in shapes for illustrations, make printable figures and assets for video games. These projects have given me experience in modelling, efficiency, UV-ing, texturing, lighting, and rendering a scene for professional application. I have made 3D animation sequences and shorts both independently and within a team previously and have an understanding of how 3DSMax, Mudbox, Houdini and ZBrush are used also.

Audio:
Steinberg Cubase, Sibelius, Fruity Loops

I have a musical background composing music in Sibelius and Guitar Pro 6 to arrange, produce and export in Steinberg’s Cubase and Fruity Loops. I have created music and sound effects for video games that I have worked on as part of group assignments for modules and university societies.

I am a student at the University of Abertay currently in my final year of a Computer Arts degree.

I am looking for work that is within the Creative Industries to gain valuable experience in that field after I graduate.
