Murphy (2014)

I just joined Industrial Light & Magic as a Senior Generalist Artist. I was previously a Lead Environment Generalist TD at DNEG working on Matrix 4 and Dune (2021), among other shows. I spent my first years in the industry between MPC and Image Engine, specializing in Digital Environments and working on over 20 projects, including Logan, the 7th season of Game Of Thrones and the Fantastic Beasts movies.

Prior to that I learned and studied Visual Effects between Scotland and France, and co-directed a student short film named “MURPHY” which has been nominated at the 13th Visual Effects Society (VES) Awards and the Siggraph 2015’s Computer Animation Festival.

Outside of "work" I love spending as much time as I can in our local mountains with my wife Ashley, going on adventures and doing outdoor photography.
