Now that you have seen my Demo Reel, this page contains the majority of the published works. It's a big list that you can browse at random that shows the variety of clients and the sustained quality but during an interview I would guide through the best work.

VFX and MOGRAPH VFX and Motion Graphics as a fulltime employee for Ubisoft Montreal and at Val Morgan Outdoor in Melbourne between 2012 and 2015. At Ubisoft Montreal, teamwork, attention to detail and quality were the top priorities for productions, while at Val Morgan extremely fast work, efficiency and autonomy were the most important.
