Edge of Tomorrow

So, after almost a decade posting on this blog, I now find myself a few hours away from my next step in my vfx career, I'm moving to Chicago and will be there for three years, maybe longer. My last post from the shores of my island, my home and my little part of Surbiton.

Excited, stressed, nervous, happy and sad, it's been a great 7 years in London and hopefully several great years in the USA !!

to taste and to touch and to feel's as much
as a man can before he repents"
