Since 1998

I am a Senior Interactive Designer living and working in London. I studied Graphic Design back in the days when the internet was just emerging - I have been there since the beginning, and I was lucky enough to start work at a small company in 1998, where a group of wonderful, patient people taught me how to write HTML with MS Frontpage. I was hired for my first web design job because I had no web design experience! Back then, web design followed a rigid grid structure as a result of the HTML tables, and they wanted someone fresh whose brain literally worked outside the box so that we could create websites that looked a bit different from everything else out there.

I have been taking entire website projects from design, through build, to delivery.
