I’m a front-end web developer and designer, working as senior web developer at Shortcut, an app development company.

Though I'm now a full-time front-end developer, my professional life has been varied and quite interesting over the years. I'm a fashion photographer by trade, with a Bachelors degree from University of the Arts in London, but I have put that path aside in favor of the web.

Since the late nineties I’ve worked in various creative positions, for a broad variety of companies. My experiences from working across many different creative fields helps me design and build better websites.
