View my Resume

I'm an experienced, versatile and down-to-earth designer and have worked in a diverse range of industries from casual gaming to financial services; consulting to education. With a background in information design and television graphics I offer a broad user-experience skillset including wireframe creation, user interface, prototyping and visual design. This is coupled with extensive direct customer liaison experience. I aim to utilise and develop these skills and experience further in future roles.

I enjoy cycling and hill-walking (particularly in the winter) and watching rugby, having formerly played for Redruth and Cornwall under 21’s. I enjoy reading historical fiction and life / landscape drawing. I have two adult children; my daughter is an illustration graduate and works in community arts; my son is autistic with severe learning difficulties and has recently left education and is embarking on adult life with help from his parents.
