About me

I’ve been obsessed with digital design since I discovered Jasc Paint Shop Pro in 1997. Things have moved on a lot since then and today I’m a professional designer (and mac convert) with experience working in-house at Disney, Pottermore and Sony PlayStation. I love to problem-solve, make things look better and improve user experiences. In my spare time I enjoy reading, writing, running, cinema, gaming and if there's time a bit of painting.
