He grew up in Africa where he was influenced by the culture and natural world then moved to Malta in his teens, working for an animation company there. He was drawn to the exciting courses at Duncan of Jordonstone College of Art and Design, Dundee, and went on to achieve a first class honours in Art, Philosophy and Contemporary Practices. He completed a Masters in Art and Humanities, also at Dundee, where he was awarded a prize for the best Academic Performance.
