About Me

I am a freelance developer, designer and photographer, with over 15 years' experience, currently based in Vancouver, Canada. I have 10 years' professional experience in consultancy, project- and product-management, and an MA from Cambridge University.

Unlike other design agencies' or freelancers' websites, you won't find pretentious designer-speak, business-talk, or tech jargon - I pride myself on being clear and easy to work with, offering open and regular communication from start to finish.
