I am a London born, British-Irish native English-speaking graphic designer, video editor & animator now based in the Callington area of Cornwall, UK. I do practically all work remotely, and have worked with businesses & agencies worldwide, both freelance and in-house, from regions including the UK, USA, Spain & Africa, providing a reliable service for clients requiring regular & repeat work.
With an original background working for printers & advertising agencies I since moved into animation, video and motion graphics to provide professional multimedia design work for business 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. Although now UK based, I lived & worked in Spain for many years and can speak, read & write Spanish and still like taking breaks & holidays there.
