About Me

I am a qualified graphic designer with experience across many facets of web and graphic design. In 2004, I received a Bachelor of Multimedia Design from Swinburne University of Technology. Upon graduation, I began work with Freshtel, where I served as lead designer for 4 years. While at Freshtel, I created Asteroid Rage in my spare time, and became one of the founding members of ParkSlide (out of hours, of course).

Designing and developing for the web is my real passion, especially crafting standards compliant sites using HTML and CSS. Originally from a Flash background, I have several years experience working with Flash and ActionScript. I also have extensive experience designing interfaces for software applications, and particularly enjoy working with Apple iOS devices

My design philosophy is simple: Design is a method of communication. Communication of ideas, communication of function, communication of brand and communication of message.
