A little more about me

I'm an experienced and motivated designer proficient in front end web design and development. Design has always been a big passion of mine, I studied Graphic Design and have commercial experience in print design. I have a firm understanding of user centred design, show strategic problem solving abilities and produce creative solutions. I pride myself on good quality composition, typography and colour arrangement. Wireframing starts for me with pen and paper, before moving onto a wireframing tool such as Balsamiq. From there it's into Illustrator/PS to devise the prototype.

I love to learn new development technologies, and stay current with web design topics and trends at online education website Treehouse. Please view my profile to see a breakdown of my learning history and current courses. I build sites from a mobile first perspective, and try to produce clean, modular code that is reusable. The main bulk of recent client work is in WordPress, I find using SASS & Gulp.js through the console is a good, efficient workflow for this.

Courses i'm currently learning: Advanced SASS, Console and Git Version Control

About Me

I currently live in Warwickshire with my fiancée Claire, and our two young boys Samuel and Benjamin (pictured). I enjoy playing squash and running (I like the Wolf Run events). One day I will hopefully attempt a marathon or triathlon.
