That's The Thing About Me

I started out life as a freelance designer/developer but my thirst for larger, more interesting projects led me to studio work. I mostly enjoy working at boutique agencies as I get to be involved in many different aspects of design and development. I currently inhabit a desk at CyberaDigital where I get up to all things digital design, UX and a wee bit of development if the need arises.

My main passion is for design, whether that’s a Website, logo, banner ad, HTML email, icon set, anything. In my work freelancing & in boutique agencies I’ve had plenty of opportunities to work on the “behind the scenes” planning and managing of Web presences (UX, SEO, analytics, social media etc). I also have reasonable coding skills using HTML5, CSS3 & jQuery.

If you’d like to have a look at my full CV I’m more than happy to email you a copy. Just email me at [email protected]
