Summary


As a professional UI/UX Designer, I bring a range of Design skills and UXD Disciplines to every project I work on. From design strategy, user interface design to typography and front-end development, my work exemplifies an appreciation for complete user experiences.

I utilize my strengths from concept and strategy through final artwork, production and user testing - having done so for companies such as Art Machine, Northlink Ferries, N.A.F.C, Shetland College, Admasters, Gaelic Themes, Rghardies, ResDiary and now at STV.

As a graduate from the Gallowgate College in Aberdeen with a HND in Computer Graphics Design and Production, my hard work and dedication has continued as I strive to stay on top of emerging technologies.

Hobbies

I am a keen Guitar player, having played in a few venues throughout Scotland.
Whenever I get a chance I am out taking photos for my own amusement, but I have even sold a few, which I never expected.

If I had more time I would be out enjoying two more of my passions, shooting and driving. I only recently found out that I seemed to have a knack for shooting.
