I have been creating things and putting them online for over twenty years. This includes websites, banner campaigns, e-commerce sites, online applications and mobile apps.
I have a conceptual mind, a talent for design and good technical knowledge.
In my work the user is key and I aim to combine user focused content and intuitive navigation.
I have a BSc Degree in MediaLab Arts from the University of Plymouth.
