About me

I’ve had over twenty five years experience designing and developing multimedia content for all sorts of platforms, delivery methods and clients. I’ve made hundreds of CDROMs with Director, countless interactive applications with Flash and have spent much of the last twelve years making websites with HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, MySQL &c., although the last three years have seen me moving more and more into video-based animation.

I’m a dab-hand with Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and Audition, can handle a camera, know a thing or two about video formats and am also fluent in sound recording, sound effects and music (composition, recording and editing). Oh, and I can also do the odd voiceover too, if required - ask me about my Hugh Laurie impression. Actually, don't, The Wife says it doesn't sound anything like him.

In my spare time I like to ponder the nature of universe and to make biscuits. Well, when I say 'make biscuits', I really mean 'help The Wife to make biscuits' by doing the initial testing of the final baked versions (REALITY-CHECK: that's called 'eating biscuits') and doing the washing up of the befouled implements.

I am also a serial parenthesiser (no, really) and my penchant for parenthesis is second only to my desire to hyphenate - I just can't-help-it.

Projects

Below, you can see what I've been up to recently. And not just recently - I've included some old projects here too, just because.

The web can be a bit ephemeral at times; sites come and go. Pages last the length of the campaign and are then consigned to the virtual landfill; hours of painstaking work reduced to pixelated rubble. This means that some of the projects below are no longer live, or have changed beyond recognition, repainted by the hands of subsequent developers, or torn-down and replaced with something wholly new.

Wherever possible for web-based projects, I will link to a live version and where not, if allowable, I'll link to an archived version.

It's worth noting that I don't update this section as often as I should - I blame you clients for keeping me so busy!
