I am proud to say I’ve been a creative designer since the year 2000.
I’ve worked for publishing companies, a design agency, a large media group and a lottery operator; collaborating with some very good designers, clever copywriters and skilled marketing professionals. During my time working with these colleagues, I’ve made a conscious effort to learn valuable snippets of information from them all, to help make me a better working professional.
Maintaining a sense of PRIDE (Personal Responsibility In Daily Efforts) in my work and enjoying the design process are a couple of key factors to my longevity in the industry.
Keeping my mind and body active helps too, for those long nights in the office burning the midnight oil whilst listening to some throwback soul beats or yacht rock.
Never one to shy away from a challenge, I’ve competed in two marathons,
a triathlon and a swimathon. I’m a health conscious individual who gets strange looks from colleagues for drinking green smoothies and crispbreads (or bird seed as they call it).
Also a huge part of my life are my wife Ella and daughter Connie, who I enjoy spending time with at our home by the sea. Talking of my daughter, I think she's calling me for a bedtime story… "There once was a man who ate bird seed", I explained.
