I am a creative, visual, user-focussed interface designer based in Gatwick.

With twenty one years experience, I have worked on award-winning digital projects at creative, marketing and UX agencies, software companies and on a contracted-out consultant basis.

Sectors include: Technology, Software, Financial, Insurance, Government, Corporate, Manufacturers, Electronics, Telecoms, Petrochemeicals, EPOS, Retail, FMCGs, Retails, Music, Entertainment, Games, Healthcare, Education, Travel & Charities.
