Hi. I'm the founder and driving force behind Edred Industries.
I'm trained as an industrial designer and have 8+ years experience working in the film industry at Weta Workshop. Some of the movies I have worked on are; Avatar, District 9, Elysium, Chappie, The Amazing Spiderman 2 and The Hobbit among many more. While there i gained a huge amount of experience in the design and whole manufacture process of a wide range of of different products. Swords, armour, sci-fi guns, spacesuits, a 3 metre tall robot, prosthetics, a 12metre Gollum and many collectible statues. Starting out as a 3d modeler and ending up managing whole projects, it was an amazing learning experience that has given me the skills i need to make pretty much anything.
After 8 years its time for me to move in a new direction and to make new things.
I started out 3D modeling at 16 when a friend gave me a cracked copy of Photoshop on CD and it happened to come with 3d Studio Max. Since then I have moved onto engineering Nurbs modeling at university and recently more and more into Zbrush.
I've always drawn but combined with my practical skills I tend to always sit in the middle between designers and engineers, understanding both and trying to find the best compromise.
I've always loved to travel, the above photo was taken on a motorbike journey from Delhi up through the Indian Himalaya. For sport I do rock climbing, windsurfing and yoga.
