Freelance Graphic Designer & Animator

About Me

I am a London born, British-Irish UK ROI flags combined native English-speaking graphic designer now based in the Callington area of Cornwall, UK and have been freelance since 2000. I do practically all work remotely, and have worked with clients & agencies worldwide from regions including the UK, USA, Spain & Africa, providing a reliable service for businesses requiring regular & repeat work.

With an original background working for printers & advertising agencies I have since moved into animation, video and motion graphics to provide professional multimedia design work for print, web, advertising and social media.

When not working I like keeping fit with mountain-biking & martial arts (if not sparring at my age), hobby photography, reading, history & science. I also follow Formula One and the American NFL. I like to holiday in Spain and can speak, read & write Spanish.
