About Me

I left school in 1987 and studied Signwriting, Typography & Creative Lettering at Plymouth College of Art & Design. From there I went on to work as a Monumental Stone Mason in Newton Abbot and then had a complete change in my career and joined the Army.


I spent 13 years in the Army travelling around the world and visiting some of the most beautiful countries that are rarely seen by the average tourist.


I Studied web design at Newcastle college and after graduating from there in 2013, I have since been working as a freelance web designer & developer. During this period I have spent the majority of the time expanding my commercial skills, enabling me to create exciting and practical websites within tighter deadlines. Although this has been a labourious process at times, my working knowledge of WordPress, Joomla & Magento has improved and helped me to achieve my goals.


I’m married to Yvonne and have 3 children, Jessica, James & Benjamin. I’m an avid Arsenal supporter and spend a good deal of my spare time in front of the television watching almost any sport (when everyone is out). I occasionally play squash, attempt to play darts for a local darts team and often subject my kids to my singing and guitar playing!
