I'm a web designer and front end developer who also enjoys taking photos and making music. I started back in 1998 when CSS didn't really exist, IE6 hadn't arrived and I usually knew more than my boss. It's been a journey of constant learning and progression, but thankfully I'm someone who's always looking to better myself and keep my brain cells active.
My hair is red btw...

Below are some examples of my web design and flash work.
At JD Williams I designed the user interface for the My Account pages, bringing the style up to date and improving the functionality. I worked with a Java team to integrate this into the website. You'll need to create an account to see these pages.
My favourite work done at the Tate Gallery. A flash interactive that puts the exhibition on a large canvas and lets you zoom around, with sound and video.
Custom site for Nicholas Hlobo exhibition at Tate Modern. The smaller Level 2 gallery gave me more freedom (and less time!) with design. I always fond of this clean site with it's primary colours and expanding backdrop design.

Exhibition site for Doris Salcedo installation in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall. The flyer design included an angled slim white triangle, and I expanded on this idea to make the website seem unbalanced in tune with the exhibition.

This is one of the small sites I built a long time ago for the band Chi 2. The simple design has meant it doesn't feel too dated, and the content is kept up to date.
(The Association for Research in the Voluntary and Community Sector) website redesign in late 2004. Full design and build working directly with the company, as well as training them how to update the site.

Music is a lovely obsession.
It started for me way back as a child with reluctant piano lessons, but took a twist back in the mid 90's thanks to an amiga 500 and cheap yamaha keyboard...
Pure cheese followed until changes in fortune allowed a laptop to enter the scene in 1999. Electronic noise took off in extreme... Melody came later and then public performances, received with joyous smiles. Mostly.
In 2002/3 I formed bands 'Bien' and 'BBTC' with friends, then started working with pedal steel maestro BJ Cole, and finally realised that to make a living out of music was a hard road to go down, and I was better off doing it for fun. Right now I'm enjoying my output.
My main musical output. I have some old tunes on MySpace, some more recent tracks on Sound Cloud, and some new tracks waiting to be mastered. Mostly chillout electronic music, but recently I'm making House tunes with my toddlers sampled vocals.
Folky electronic music made with my friend TC. Always a treat to make music together. We've an old page on Myspace, and have some recent music being prepared for bandcamp.
A band I used to be in with another friend Dave. We've a myspace page with a few tunes.
Band that I joined to help the artist BJ Cole tour an album that he'd made using many musicians. We had gigs at Big Chill, Bestival and other festivals as well as gigs around UK and Europe. I played a laptop live and remixed the album tracks (using Ableton Live). You can read more about this on BJ Cole's website
