The super brief working-life-timeline is as follows:

  • 2001 - Current 12 years freelance: After leaving Definition Digital Media I set up as a sole-trader with the view that I would freelance for a few years to gain experience... ...I'm still freelancing.
    Now have some amazing clients, few from the Definition days, some new and some local
  • 1995 - 2001 5 years full-time: Working initially at Powerhouse Design pretty much straight from art college I went to work creating 35mm slides for Mercury communications amongst other clients. This was right at the start of the digital revolution in Conference presentations - i.e. the birth of PowerPoint and even better the discovery of Macromedia Director as a much more fun authoring environment for cool presentations - hey we could play sound!
  • Birth - Art College Stuff you don't really need to know: Born in Walthamstow, brought up in Chingford (which is not in Essex), moved to Loughton (okay that is in Essex) and eventually went to Art College at the Kent Institute of Art & Design - Maidstone Campus
