in south Sheffield born and raised, on the mega drive is where i spent most of my days.
as a kid i was fascinated with how things worked much to the dismay of my patient mother who watched in horror i was took the last screw out of our VHS player. triumph! the intention was to figure out how it worked but i’m pretty sure all that happened was that i broke the damn thing.
not to worry! soon after, i was introduced to the internet and as tempting as it was to take the computer apart (that would come later) i got hooked on the web. i spent hours picking apart websites and software trying to quench the thirst for knowledge.
this curiosity and desire to learn was how i taught myself to code. i went to university and studied games design where i drew pretty pictures, learn to code some more, made beautiful *ahem* 3d models, and finally, made pretty games.
upon leaving however, i knew that the web was the place for me. i *somehow* managed to talk myself into a job working at a great design agency in Leeds.
from Leeds back to Sheffield, i’ve worked for several agencies where i’ve built websites for huge multi-national companies and worked with some amazing people.
