I started my design career fresh out of uni as a freelance graphic designer getting work from people I knew, whilst helping a family friend renovate their house. This soon developed into a steady stream of work and became full time until 2014 when I became employed as a digital designer for a marketing agency. I stayed there for four years and learnt a lot about the industry and developed lots of skills, especially in the digital side. I’m now a Senior Designer and head up a small design team as well as managing the work coming in and going out of the studio. We cover both print and digital but digital is still my passion and over the last few years I have further developed my skills from HTML emails and WordPress powered websites to animation and motion graphics.
When I’m not at work I love playing sports and being outside! I play hockey for Wycombe mens 1st team and try to get out into the mountains as much as I can. My wife and I have recently had our second daughter which is keeping us busy as we’re also in the process of redecorating our new house.
