I am a 2D Spine animator and illustrator living in Cape Town, South Africa.

I have over 15 years experience in graphic design, and 2 years working as a 2D Spine animator and illustrator.
For the last 12 years I have been working in the online gaming industry, creating graphic assets for online slot games.
I work closely with the development team in our company and is responsible for all graphic assets that go into production.
I am also responsible for all Spine animation for the slot games.

Most of the animation involves creating the background animations or slot symbol animations that play when the slot game is active.
I have experience of working with meshes and non-mesh animations in Spine.

Software that I use daily:
Photoshop, Illustrator, Spine, Brackets, Texture Packer and of course my Wacom Intuos Pro Tablet.

Apart from design and illustration I have a keen interest in infared photography but at the moment this is more of a hobby than a professional enterprise. 

My tertiary education includes:
Undergraduate degree at the University of Stellenbosch (BA degree majoring in Archaeology and Anthropology).
Graduate degree in Sutainable Development at the Sustainability Institute (University of Stellenbosch).
Design diloma from Hirt & Carter in Cape Town.
Sustainable building course in Ladismith.
