During his career, he has worked on features including 28 days Later, 28 Weeks Later and Millions with Danny Boyle as well as storyboarding campaigns for Kellogg’s, Honda, Tennent’s Lager, and IRN-BRU.

He’s been an asset to the company and complemented our artists’ strengths on a series of major projects, so we wanted to offer him a full-time role in order to ensure we can always share his exceptional creative talents with our clients.
