I come from an illustration and design background: I’ve studied figurative illustration, but professionally have always worked as a Digital Designer. Back in 1998, I started at BT Wireplay – the first ever dial-up/ISDN PC gaming network in the world, designing Quake 1 and Quake3 multiplayer levels.
My next job was at the BBC Creative Services (later known as Red-Bee after privatisation) where after 6 years as Interaction Designer and Promo Director, I left and started freelancing. Fourteen years later, I still freelance in the digital design field, mostly for London based ad-agencies.
