I graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University in 1995 with a First in Creative Arts, after spending three years messing about with paint, video & computery things. I wandered into web design and multimedia, initially freelance trading as mixmanmedia, then as part of my role at Sheffield Hallam University from 2005.

I kept up my extra-curricular creativity by occasionally doing paintings and websites and designing things for friends and family, and just for the hell of it.

But following an eventful couple of years, and some positive encouragement, I decided to reduce my working hours to have more free time to develop my own ideas and generally just chill out a bit… and so here I am, stuffing my wonky face with ice cream and messing about with paint, video & computery things.
