Education

Masters/PostGrad

Having gained a Masters of Science in Multimedia from DCU in 2005 I have worked broadly in the film, traditional graphics and 3d graphics sectors. I relocated to Cork City for my current role almost three years ago and have never looked back. Working with a cutting edge technology company in West Cork, I have had the opportunity to gain new skills and work in an exciting and fast paced environment delivering 3d scanning services to sectors as varied as film and gaming, to reverse engineering and heritage. I would relish the opportunity to make a contribution to a company which may require a multi-skilled multimedia professional.
