about me

In 1991, I graduated from Falmouth school of Fine Arts Cornwall (FSA). Arriving in Bristol in early 1992 I became interested in digital music, concentrating on sound design, and electronic music. As well as my personal recorded work I was commissioned to do short pieces for the BBC, Channel Four and Aardman Animations in Bristol.

Over time my focus shifted to web technologies & their capabilities. I did a short course on HTML & CSS and decided that was what I would persue.

It became obvious that there was a wealth of information online that I could use to teach myself. This method proved invaluable and put me in touch with a lot of the true web pioneers, the developers and designers who continually push the Web forward.

In 2011 I did an internship at a local digital Agency here in Bristol. Here I bolstered my existing skills, and learnt a lot in a short time! Beginning with mocking up Photoshop & Illustrator flat templates into working HTML websites, and fiddling around with JavaScript, whilst gaining an indepth knowledge of how an agency runs itself day to day.

From here I went on to design and build the sites you see here, and obvioulsy this site itself. So have a look around, then feel free to contact me..


more about me

Should you (and you should!) hire me to create a website or logo, know that I take a personal interest in your projects and goals. I will not blindly plug your information into a default website theme.

I create unique and personalized work for all of my clients. I am also a firm believer in teaching clients to maintain their own websites. With today's tools, managing your website can be as easy as writing an email and infinitely more gratifying. Finally, I place high value on clean and maintainable code, and do my best to utlilize upcoming web technologies while continuing to support web standards.
