Freelance designer & developer based in Birmingham.

Art Rooms Kings Heath
One of community projects I have been most proud of was what we achieved at the Art Rooms. From a wreck of a building with an addictive charm about it we created an art hub that enabled the public and local artists to express themselves creativly. We put on free classes and work shops and just had a good old time! Sadly the properly was finally needed by its owner but you casn see loads of the amazing things the Art Rooms in Kings Heath had to offer on Instagram.
Low Traffic Rage
There isn't much that get's certain people incandecant with rage faster than the talk of 'Low Traffic Neighbourhoods' (feel blessed if this term is an unknown to you!) I did a little citizen science to do some air quality measuring when they were installed near me. www.kingsheathltn.co.uk documents my findings.
Away from the screen
Doing manual things is a real antidote to a life spent working mainly on a screen. Converting an old commuter bike into a track day race bike was a really enjoyable project!
It is quite the contradiction to on the one hand love engines and motorsport but also enjoy calmer pastimes like growing veggies, the manual process is a flowing theme throughout my life.
Back int day...
Being an old man of the sea, over time I have ended up having quite a mish mash of interests. I am a big fan of both listening to and playing music, infact there is actual living proof (albeit on a tape cassette - remember them kids?) of my days playing in a post punk band.
