About

When I was a child, I used to sit in the spare bedroom of my Grandma's house and copy out sections of the newspaper by hand – the headlines, the TV listings, the comics – into a folded A5 newsletter, and try to sell them to my dad and grandparents.

I was never very good at drawing, but have always had an eye for good design and good copy. When I was at school I started coding HTML, but never took it too seriously until later in life. By college I had picked up my passion for photography, and this led me through the digital technologies I use today to make content such as websites, photography, video, graphics and print publications.

When I'm not at work, I'm out and about with my (well-loved) Mamiya 645 or at home putting together hand-bound books. On the weekends you'll usually find me in the kitchen, flicking through a selection from my growing cookbook collection with something new cooking in the oven.
