I have a deep passion for creating quirky interactive content. Things that look good and work well really float my boat. Although working for myself means I never really seem to stop working - it's brilliant because we control what we work on and how we work so it just doesn't feel like work any more.
After over 10 years of working in and around the internet the one thing I've learned is never to rest on my experience things change too often and too fast to get complacent.
I have exceptional interpersonal, team managment, organisational and problem solving skills. I'm an excellent creative Adobe Flash user with some actionscript skills. I am extremely enthusiastic about using a strong quality process. I have a good experience and knowledge of accessibility.
