I am a senior creative communicator with over 15 years of graphic design and web development experience. Born and bred in the Scottish Hebrides I have called Australia home for 10 years and live with my young family in Newcastle, NSW.
As a designer who can code - combined with a knack for problem solving, a perceptive attitude and passion for user centric design - I am uniquely positioned to understand the full scope of a project and guide it appropriately.
Having fulfilled a variety of creative roles for clients in a myriad of industries I have developed a diverse set of skills and experience. As a result I am adept at identifying stakeholder requirements and developing acute solutions with a keen eye for detail.
Outside of work I am a family man and keen ameature athlete. Everyday I make time to play and create with my kids and train, either running or cycling. I love black coffee and a good podcast.
