I have a passion for making. Whether that be through animation, illustration, film-making or carving a spoon from a slab of oak. My aim is to bring a thoughtful approach to whatever it is that I tackle; creativity with a strong sense of design and an emphasis on concept and storytelling.

My work tends to explore the blurry line where the intangible and physical meet. Pairing cutting edge technology, like virtual reality, with raw physical materials, and always keeping people at the centre of the experience.

Currently a freelance designer, animator and director; having had the pleasure of working with companies such as Studio AKA, Chromosphere LA & Nexus Studios, among others.

Formerly based at the Google Creative Lab where I worked on a diverse range of projects; from interactive virtual reality, to user experience design, as well as animation. Before that I was an Animation Director at Beakus.

My work has been shown at festivals across the world and I'm the proud owner of a D&AD Award & Vimeo Staff Pick.

Graduated with First Class Honours in Illustration & Animation BA(Hons) at Kingston University 2014.

The origin of my family name is 'Son of Hind' - a hind being a type of deer.
