About me


I have 20 years’ experience in the web, digital media, communication and IT industry with extensive knowledge of idea conceptualisation, solution identification and the complete digital media lifecycle.

I’m based in the South West of England but have worked internationally. I’ve been fortunate to work with a number of local government authorities, academic and commercial organisations on a variety of exciting web, digital media, communication and IT based projects. They’ve all been different but all massively enjoyable.

My focus is on what’s actually required, ensuring the project is implemented on time and within budget and making sure dialogue is open and honest – my communication skills are second to none.

If I’m not working on exciting new projects, then I’ll most likely be exploring and taking photographs.


Motto

  • I believe in doing things once, doing it right, doing it with the customer in mind and doing it so employees have to use it.
  • Standardise… Simplify… and Share.
