I have worked on LOTR, King Kong and the Narnia films as a designer, and was head of the design dept for the last 2 years I was working there.

Extra Experience

I have experience as an Art director, understand design as part of an over all process. I manage people well, have good communication skills and understand how to work as part of a group.
I understand that being part of a larger product requires an objective view of your work and no room for ego.
