Skills overview


Technology friendly

Freelance, 2004 – current

I work in digital design, mainly in the retail and film and theatre sector. Most of my work is design, build and animation for online such as promotion, advertising and pitch work. Most recently I’ve been working with Venn Recruitment at MailAdvertising doing After Effects CC work for an major brand pitch which they won using my work. This meant turning around a 4:30 video in a few days, initially working from a bare script without voiceover and using stock assets and adapting them in Illustrator and Photoshop to brand. I was building it as much as possible in an adaptable ‘Agile’ way to allow for later script changes.

I’ve also been supplementing my freelance with working on independent film productions and working with friends to design projects for online promotion and mobile apps. Examples of these are the motion comics and ident work I did for Subversive for Bearlands and the E-Jitz video for a 10 inch vinyl release, and VJ work for Kleptonite (with Butch Auntie, Kleptones and others). More details in the Personal Work section below, or you can see examples of all of these on my online portfolio

Senior Interactive Designer, PA Consulting, London July 2000 – Feb 2004

I left PA in February 2004, but I worked as a senior designer in the new media and web department at PA Consulting for 4 and a half years. During my time at PA my role broadened from purely web design into new media, 3D, video, development, strategy, QA and information architecture.

Motion work at PA Consulting

In the last couple of years at PA I was increasingly involved in video production, mostly for corporate training, presentations and demo reels for conferences, working with the likes of British Telecom, 3GSM in Cannes, AMV BBDO, Seymour Powell and St Lukes. This involved taking video projects from concept, storyboarding, direction, camerawork and DV shoot, through to production, edit and post production. Here’s one example for BT Marketing, you can see Part 1 here and Part 2 here:

Web Designer, LOOT.Com, May 2000 – July 2000

Working for 3 months at the website of the listings paper LOOT. After 3 months was headhunted by PA to come back in a greater role, extended to working on client work and external work as well as the PA website.

New Media Designer, PA Consulting, August 1999 – April 2000

My first period at PA I worked specifically on the PA website and other sites. Examples of this type of work is a site for Sundridge Park which was also an early use of 3D-Flash in the Floorplan guide section, and concept, 3D modeling, design and build including Flash/HTML

Personal work

Personal websites / Social media

I run several music blogs / podcasts – Radio Clash and Digital Debris which I’ve designed and built, as well as with content from a friend. I’m heavily involved with social media, from being one of the UK’s first podcasters, to video podcast, Twitter, Facebook, so produce a lot of video, photo and audio content for those. I’ve also started Walking The Wrong Way to showcase my walks, using geo-tagged blogs, GPX (GPS) tracks and mapping, my writing and photography.


I’ve been creating mashup videos and video podcasts since 2005, showcasing my skills and using After Effects and Premiere – you can find these at and – for instance my video for DJ Earworm’s Reckoner Lockdown is now over the 350,000 view mark! My videos such as Welcome Back using film, music videos, After Effects and Premiere have also been shown at Glastonbury as part of The Kleptones live show and my video for djBC during Young Punx’s live gigs.

I also used glitching for the Petula Clark – Cut Copy Me video I did, using VDMX and Quartz glitch plugins. This was initially produced for my own VJ sets but I was approached by an agency last year about working on a tour video for one of the world’s biggest bands because they liked this video. Can’t say who (I signed a NDA!) but it was great confidence boost. Video is here:

Creative hobbies

Other creative hobbies include dying and fabric arts (creating my own canvas shoe designs), photography, recording original music and covers. I have sometimes used my music and audio production skills in my commercial work, usually working in Ableton Live!, REAPER, Traktor Scratch Pro and previously in Sony Acid and VirtualDJ. I have a Bandcamp site for my music, and I create mashups and remixes, as I’ve been active as a VJ and DJ in the past, and I still post regular long mixes on Radio Clash.
