About this website

If you are here for the first time, I made this site as a place to share my experience of working as a designer and running a solo business.

I’m also using it as a place to document my design process and record everything I’m learning from books, articles and various other material.

Hopefully you might pick up some useful lessons whilst you’re here.

A little more about me

I started teaching myself design and code in 2006 whilst I was studying art.

I tried a “real job” in Insurance after graduating university, but quit in 2010 to focus on making websites for a living and other creative pursuits.

Right now I’m living between London and Hamburg where I work remotely with a handful of clients. When I’m not at my desk I enjoy hiking, climbing and taking pictures.

You can also follow me on Twitter or see my full resume on LinkedIn.
