Ok, what's this website for then?

It's my portfolio. At the risk of sounding pretentious, it's "an archive of my graphical output". But, it's desperately out of date...
It's where I put my stuff for you to look at. Now, look at it, then email me to say hello.

Things you don't need to know

  • Born in the 70s, which means I've lived in 4 decades already. This worries me.
  • 6 foot-ish
  • I lived in standard suburbia in central England for far too long.
    Since 2007 I've lived in Edinburgh, Scotland.
  • I've been working as a designer for almost a decade now. What sort of design? Digital, multimedia, "user experience". Primarily working with the on screen medium, I've designed many many websites, user interfaces and online games as well as illustrating, animating, branding, video editing, effects, music, sound... essentially, I make pretty things that you (yes, you) look at and interact with, on screen. I spend a lot of time thinking about you and anticipating your needs and wants, even things you don't know you want.
    I got into the business at the right time. This was a fluke.
  • And now, I'm pretty much where I want to be, moving onwards and upwards...

And finally...
