Hey y'all, I'm Josh.


I am a Visual Effects Artist with a focus in lighting, FX, and grooming and I'm currently based in Adelaide, South Australia.


Constantly I find myself looking for ways to visualize my ideas, and CG happens to be a perfect medium to express myself and my vision. 


As well as being an outlet for artistic expression, the technical nature and boundless possibilities of VFX make me always strive to improve and learn as much as I can.

Currently, I am working as an FX Key Artist at Mr X in Adelaide and I was previously a Houdini artist at Electric Theatre Collective in Los Angeles and a Houdini Intern at SideFX in Toronto.
