I am able to play a key role throughout a sites development to ensure cross-browser compatibility, accessibility and an enjoyable customer experience with usability always at the forefront of my design considerations.

I thrive on developing engaging creative solutions, I can work to a deadline and I have the ability to produce detailed technical specifications from discussions with client to understand their requirements and produce solutions that are as visually impressive as they are easy to use.

I consider myself highly-adaptable, I can absorb new ideas and can communicate clearly and effectively, this gives me the ability to quickly interpret client requirements and in turn, provide great looking web applications and websites that often exceed expectation. I am currently looking for a opportunity to join a dynamic, ambitious, growing company and forge a career as a first class website designer.

I particularly enjoy travelling and have been fortunate enough to visit over a dozen countries across Europe, the Far East and South America.
