Interactive Design & Photography

I like to create user focused interfaces and designs for the web and beyond.

A gadget addict who’s a sucker for a fun game, roller coaster nutcase and a photographer fuelled almost entirely by tea and cake.

I'm currently open for new work oportunities and adventures
