I find huge inspiration from the places I visit and work, whether its central London, Scotland, Italy or anywhere, the people I meet and the new things I learn through every project constantly push me forwards to new skills. On top of that I have worked hard to combine my early life interest for art and design with my later passions for programming and technology - giving me a highly complementing skill set that allows for huge diversity of work.

In my portfolio I have tried to showcase my balance of design, creative and dev work; believing that they can be used effectively together. All in all I am a very creative designer being able to bring in truly awesome artworking to any project.
