I’m a front-end web developer currently based in Greater Manchester, UK.

I Graduated in February 2010 in Multimedia & Website Development (BSc Hons).

I Love anything art related. In my spare time i’m always doodling, drawing and gathering huge amounts of inspiration from blogs I like to follow and magazines I find or purchase. I am constantly on a mission to perfect all aspects of design and code.
