  • More about me
    When I’m not designing on the web, or making images, I enjoy listening to my collection of punk rock music, or travelling to cold climates chasing powder on my snowboard.

    I watch a lot of sport, I drink a lot of coffee. I also enjoy eating fine foods complimented by fine wines and traveling.

    I would like to combine all these things by embarking on a travelling food & wine safari/snowboarding/sports festival/punk rock adventure.
