I am a Houdini artist and scripter with a great passion for visual effects. My passion for visual effects started with an early interest for film making. In 2007 I won 2 prizes (Best Fictional Short, and the Audience Prize) at the Amandus Film Festival* for a film called “Hobby”. The following year, I was nominated in the Best Documentary Short category for the documentary “Wonderbaum”. While working for Flash Studio (www.flashstudio.no), I created 3D animation and graphics sequences for several TV shows produced for NRK (the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation). I see myself as a problem solver and a quick learner. I have always enjoyed mathematics and logic puzzles, so I had fun learning programming and scripting for computer graphics at Bournemouth University. I have a BA in Computer Visualisation and Animation and a MA in Digital Effects from the NCCA at Bournemouth University. I have since worked as a Houdini FX artist at Union VFX in London for a year, and I am currently working at BaseFX in Beijing, China.
