Hey! I’m Chris and I’m a freelance/contract motion designer and 2D animator with over a decade of experience, based in Wellington, New Zealand.

I enjoy projects that are driven by a positive purpose - whether that’s supporting people and communities, making complex topics more accessible or helping organisations to tell their stories in a genuine and interesting way.

Before freelancing, I worked in-house for five years creating educational animation and video content for the Open Polytechnic. In the early 2010’s I completed a Bachelor of Design Innovation at Victoria University and recently completed a Graduate Diploma in Applied Psychology from the University of Auckland in 2023. Altogether, I’m keen to work on projects that are helpful, motivating and supportive.

And while animation is my thing these days, I continue to draw inspiration and use skills from past experience in photography, videography, editing and design too. 

What do I do?

  • 2D character animation
  • 2D motion graphics
  • Animated explainer videos
  • Learning and educational animation
  • Opening Titles, Logos and Credit Sequences

Where do we start?

‘It was a delight working with Chris to make an animated video for our organisation. Chris spoke to us in detail about what we needed and seemed to intuitively understand our requirements.  He has a lovely manner and showed empathy and insight in matching up our goals to an artistic vision.  He clearly explained the process for each review stage and kept to our tight timeframes for finishing the work.  He was really responsive to adjustments we wanted to make as the work evolved.  The resulting animation was beautiful, captivating, charming and hit just the right tone - we couldn’t imagine a better outcome based on our brief.  We are really delighted.  It was a real pleasure working with Chris and we highly recommend him!’

"Working with Chris on the Wellington City Council project was fantastic. Chris was professional, talented, reliable and passionate every step of the way. Chris went above and beyond, bringing our ideas to life in creative, authentic and original ways.  Being able to find someone who has all these qualities is rare and we would highly recommend Chris for any project. We can't wait to work with him again."

“Chris is one of the most creative people I know. His clever, artistic story-telling is just a pleasure to behold. Having voiced many e-Learning modules that Chris has animated, I believe his ability to bring topics to life with unique creative insight and story-telling is some of the best in the business. Marry this up with total professionalism and delivery and you’re on to a winner!”
