I have always loved art but was never really that good at it. Looking back at my paintings, they were screaming out to be created on a computer! I was trying to create transparencies and gradients for instance, much easier to do in Photoshop.

After my A’levels in 1995 (I won’t share my art grade) I studied Graphic Design as part of my Art Foundation at York Technological College. My love for things digital stepped up a level when I managed York’s first internet cafe in 1996 and I worked at its sister multimedia company creating and designing simple websites using HTML and the Adobe suite.
Having gaining a first class degree in Interactive design in 2000 (my final project was a CD-Rom – times have moved on!), I joined the BBC for 6 years as an Interactive TV Designer. There I worked across departments such as CBeebies, did branding, usability including writing and setting up user testing, and designed across various tv platforms.
