More about me

Born at the end of the seventies and missing out on the whole bell bottom glam rock thing (thank god) I have always been interested in creating things.

I have spent over two decades honing my design and development skills. I have been in the design industry since 1996 having completed my drama school course and deciding to go into a career that (A) I was good at and (B) could make some money at.

In September 2012 I moved from the UK to Queensland, Australia.

I am currently working for CentacareCQ in Rockhampton performing a wide range of design, development and marketing roles.

I have many hobbies. I love movies, walking, trying out different restaurant and swimming (but not all at the same time).

After my wife and daughter, my next love is Apple. I am passionate for any tech of a fruit-based variety (although Blackberry and Raspberry Pi need not apply.)
