About Me

I’ve had the good fortune to have worked in the creative design industry for over 18 years. During which time I’ve helped a wide variety of businesses improve their communications – from startups to global brands.

For the past six years I’ve run my own business, focusing on website development and graphic design. My approach is straightforward, be honest, upfront and demystify the design and development process wherever possible.

My design studio is based in Eastbourne where I operate remotely most of the time. My client base is mainly in the United Kingdom but I also work with overseas clients from time to time.

A few more things

  • Our Family

    Family man

    I’m married to the delightful Laura (she may read this). We have one remarkable daughter, one ginger pussy cat, three chickens and nine Neon Tetra fishes. All of which keep me on my toes!

  • Eastbourne from Butts Brow

    Keep it simple

    I’m a firm believer in living a simple life. For me this means being self-sufficient, debt-free and keeping my possessions to an absolute minimum – I repair or recycle whenever possible.

  • Keep on learning

    Keep on learning

    I may have a BA (Hons) degree in Art and Design but my natural curiosity has led me to learn a lot of extra skills, including large-format printing, 3D modelling and animation and video editing.

  • Working on the Allotment

    Green fingers

    Our family allotment keeps us out of mischief for most of the year. Growing our own food is a lot of work but our fruit and veg is arguably far tastier than that of the supermarkets.

  • Kayaking


    Living in Eastbourne does have its advantages. In the summer months, whenever I get the chance, you’ll find me kayaking either off the coast of Eastbourne, Pevensey Bay or the Cuckmere river.

  • Head of Graphics

    Head of Graphics

    Before setting up my own business I was Head of Graphics at West End – an international events partner for global brands. I led the creative team and managed our print and digital output.

  • Snowboarding


    I learnt to snowboard in my twenties. Since then I’ve had the good fortune to have ridden many slopes including Whistler, Cypress Mt., Grouse Mt., Kapurn and Zell am See. Oh and one Olympic halfpipe!

  • Special Effects

    Creature effects

    I once considered a career in creature and character effects. I learnt all the traditional model making techniques, sculpting in Plasteline clay, fibreglass mould making and casting in foam latex.
