About

In my professional career I have worked as a Website Designer for over two and a half years but have over 15 years of hands-on experience; from the most basic table-based websites in the early days of HTML right through to present-day HTML5, CSS3, jQuery and Responsive Website Design.

Coupled with my Website Design skills I also have a deep interest in User Experience and I have worked to hone my skills in understanding best practices in usability and how users can and could interact with systems I have helped design and develop over the years.

As you can probably tell a majority of my experience is web-based though I have a number of skills within Graphic Design and enjoy Photography as one of my main hobbies.

Background

From an early age I've been fascinated by Website Design and Graphic Design; absorbing knowledge from forums, books, videos and my fellow colleagues. I've also honed my skills during work placements and full-time employment, and frequently experiment with new ideologies and designs in my spare time.

Hobbies/Interests

One of my great passions is Photography as I enjoy the satisfaction of taking a drive out to a location, taking out my camera and seeing the world from a different perspective.

Some of my favourite places for Photography have been Dartmoor, Brixham and Wembury in Devon, Lyme Regis in Dorset as well as the Kentish coastal towns of Broadstairs and Deal.

I also like to critique other people's work for inspiration and to develop my own skills.

Favourite show and music of the moment

Mythbusters and The Prodigy's Invaders Must Die.
