Hi, I’m a thirty-something web designer and front-end developer. I work at Blue House Design a small design agency in Maidstone, Kent.
I’ve worked on many projects including:
- helping a client transition a digital service
- improved the user experience of a family-run hotel chain
- built ecommerce websites
Before turning my attention to web design, I made a living as a Taekwon-Do instructor. I taught classes across Kent and Sussex to children – including early years – and adults. I was a tournament umpire and grading assistant.
After university I joined a small business where I helped double turnover to four million pounds. I designed and ran a service, implemented the company’s first Quality Management System.
Outside of work
I have a degree in fine art from the prestigous Chelsea College of Art and Design.
I am a second degree black belt in Taekwon-Do. I am also keen on cricket and rugby.
I like to read about user centred design, typography and grid design. I also appear to have started a book collection…
I am democratic socialist and member of the Labour party.
I live in Tonbridge, Kent with my wife Rebecca.
I am volunteer coach at Codebar helping under-represented people learn programming.
