Professional Experience
My formal training and study revolved around graphic design through many undergraduate levels culminating in a BA (HONS) in Graphic Arts under the direct tutelage of David Crow. But, soon after my commercial career began I was given an opportunity which was to ultimately define an 11 year specialism in digital, interactive, new media... it has been called a lot over the past decade or so.

At the end of this 11 year journey I made an intentional pact to jump out of my comfy-ness, re-broaden my focus and rediscover the physical realm.

Since then I have been producing work across the gamut of design applications and leading successful creative teams in this broader capacity. I also Lecture at the University of Leeds - teaching Graphic Design students how to become interactive designers through AI, IxD and UI. So, I am still a digerati at heart, but creating the physical side of the coin makes me a happy guy.
