I am based just outside of Cardiff, in the beautiful country of Wales.
My journey began when I was around 12 years old. I had always been fascinated by computers and technology and forever wanted to know more. I started to study html and css, this was where it all fell into place.
I got involved in the Macromedia Dreamweaver era, producing mock ups in Photoshop and coding them up in Dreamweaver or notepad+. Naturally over the years, I got involved building websites for others and delved into a variety of web languages and software programmes. (Adobe being a large part of this)
CMS platforms, such as WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Joomla were on the rise and I then found myself developing beautiful websites with database driven frameworks/engines. Since this time, I have found myself wanting to learn more, not just about the web but about design as a whole. How it is structured, how to problem solve correctly to portray a message and how to showcase items efficiently.
I now have over 18 years professional, hands on experience working in Design and Development, having worked with small to large businesses on a wide variety of projects. Each project has been totally different and has helped me gain a lot of experience.Its common to find me sketching ideas for logos, working within the adobe suite, producing marketing materials for both online and offline campaigns, prototyping and implementing websites, fixing core issues with live websites, maintaining servers and databases, setting up new workflow projects and forever studying new subjects to broaden my skillset.
