I am fanatical about many aspects of design including graphic, architectural, product, furniture, industrial, fashion and just about anything else that can be made to look beautiful. I love the way these disciplines intersect and the way parallels can be drawn between them.

Working in design for over 15 years, I have always tried to learn from others, and myself, as much about good design as possible. Starting as a junior designer I have honed my skills, eventually being confident enough with my own ability to work for myself, before moving on to lead a small team of designers.

As a lead designer / senior designer I have met with clients, discussed their wants and their needs for the project, their thoughts and expectations. Starting with concepts, I have taken projects through to completion, delivering full company branding, websites, literature, promotional materials, magazines, collateral, photography, videos, animations and anything else they might need.

A lot of the skills I have learnt over the past 15 years in the design industry have been self taught. I see learning new 'things' as one of the main objectives in life. Pretty much all my design skills are self taught, along with HTML, CSS and the UIkit front end framework, photography, video editing, sound editing and 3D modelling.

Using logical thinking to solve a problem gives me an enormous sense of satisfaction and I always strive to find the best and most efficient way or create a better way of doing something.

Outside work I have a very strong interest in photography, architecture, designing and building my own furniture, writing a lot of music for various projects/experiments and script writing.
