For design work, I am proficient with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects. I have a good understanding of the programming languages PHP and JavaScript as well as database design using MySQL.

My specialities are WordPress, HTML5 and CSS3.

 

In my spare time, I like to create the odd tune using Ableton Live Suite. You can listen to my tracks here.

I enjoy playing percussion, keyboards and singing and love going to the theatre, especially to watch musical productions and local amateur dramatics.

The development of augmented and virtual reality is also an interest of mine and consequently how each of these technologies is being applied to video games, medical science and mental health.
