I have many years of experience working in television, digital media and print. I’ve created motion graphics for numerous primetime TV programmes and illustrated children’s books, national magazines and even postage stamps. I’ve also spoken at media events in the UK and Australia, led workshops for schools and colleges and trained community workers in Brazil to produce their own public health posters.
After graduating in 1992, I worked as an animator on some of the earliest multimedia productions, including the winner of a BIMA Gold Award,1993. I traveled widely in America, Europe and Asia as part of this burgeoning new creative industry.
In 1995 I joined the BBC and was part of the team that developed the Corporation’s first website. I also worked on BAFTA and RTS nominated documentaries and collaborated with BBC Northern Ireland to develop an RTS nominated interactive series about The Troubles.
The early nineties were an incredibly exciting time to be involved in new media as it was then called, laying the foundations of the digital world we take for granted today.
In 1997 I co-founded Codename, with 2 BBC colleagues. A boutique media agency, we produced many acclaimed projects, including animated shorts for Channel 4, the BBC’s ‘Spywatch’ website (Macromedia User Award 1998) and ‘Wizz Kids’ – an interactive animation series for Granada Media’s entertainment portal (BIMA Gold 1999).
Since 2001, I have enjoyed a busy freelance career as an animator and illustrator.
I enjoy sharing my passion for visual communication with people of all ages. Find out more about courses and events here
