Del became a director in London after working in animation and art direction. His directorial debut was a music video for Tom Jones, which got him a British Animation Awards nomination.

Del’s work has been published on Nowness, Promonews and Creators Project; his short films have earned him Vimeo Staff Picks and as a commercial director, Del has worked with clients such as Nissan, Heineken, MTV and Visa.

This all happened after he gave up on his dream of being a circus lion tamer at the age of 6, a pilot at 10, a football player at 16 and a rock star at 20.
