About

I'm a maker, a tinkerer, a builder, a designer, a take-it-apart and put-it-back-together-er. Whether I'm building websites, coding interactive content, writing copy, or making films I try to imbue all of my work with freshness --a sort of newness that makes you think (differently). I create content that is so bold it leaps out of the box at you. I strive to create work that is elegant, articulate and novel, but above all else it should be transformative.
