Experience

  • Junior Environment Artist at nDreams
    Farnborough, United Kingdom
    July 2017 - February 2019

    I started working at nDreams after they saw my work at the finals day for the Search for A Star competition. This enabled me to work in a fast growing team of industry veterans, and allowed me to develop my art and knowledge of the industry. nDreams is a VR focused games company and I have worked on many projects for upcoming and existing HMD’s in my time there. Though it is my first real industry job I was given my fair share of responsibility in creating environments featured in the final products.

  • Simulation Technology Assistant at Sheffield Hallam University
    Sheffield, United Kingdom
    July 2015 - July 2016

    I was successful enough to be offered a placement for the faculty of health and well-being at Sheffield Hallam University. This role entailed creating virtual learning enhancements, such as animations, simulations, games and other interactive media projects. This gave me experience in creating games for IOS devices, using Unity 3D which at the start was a new software to me. Other projects include using the Oculus Rift, Myo armband, Haptics Pen, Leap Motion, and other peripherals to immerse students in to a virtual reality learning environment. The experience is overall interesting to see another side to the industry, creating products for a medical purpose and the alternate uses of games.
