Approachable and friendly with a thirst for knowledge, my passion is design and new technologies. I have a degree in BA (Hons) Interactive Media Production and over 7 years experience in front end development; working with clients to deliver creative digital solutions and great user experiences.
I enjoy working with a motivated and creative team that has like-minded individuals that share the same passion for their role within industry. I always take the opportunity to learn something new. Most of all, I enjoy putting ideas into practice, expressing my imagination onto a screen and creating visual experiences that stimulate minds. I take responsibility for the balance between functionality and design; whilst a website needs look great it also needs to load fast and be accessible.
Digital Media Production
Seven years of experience working on interactive digital projects across a range of platforms and form factors.
I bring a clear user-centered focus to my projects, making wireframes & mockups deliver on business objectives and user needs through well thought-out digital strategies.
Put me in front of a client, and I will ensure technical issues are explained in plain english and that everyone will be on the same page.
I’m just as comfortable being mentored as I am mentoring others. I enjoy the collaborative process of solving problems but won’t shy away from owning and running with a project when needed.
