Welcome to my new, and still evolving website. Please bear with me whilst the inclusion of new content and image galleries takes place.

I’ve had this website for about ten years now and it was purely focused on my User Experience and Web Project Management skill sets.

As time has moved on and my hobbies have become small businesses in their own right, I have closed some of my other websites, including the content here in one central place.

I’ve been working in various areas of “the internet” since 2000 and after a few years developing  sites, I gravitated towards managing implementations.

IA boardThis site and the blog articles I’ve written are partly about sharing my experience and knowledge but also to help me learn from others when feedback is left.

Over the years, I’ve found that as much as I enjoy the development side of the web,  my forte is in the user experience, architecture and management of sites.

I am a member of the UXPA and Interaction Design Foundation and continue to work some of the best and biggest brands in the UK, helping them implement digital products and software systems, designed with the end user in mind.

Whilst my Masters degree is in Computer Science and “User Experience” has been my line of work for over a decade, I am at heart a creative person and am active in the arts, crafts and photographic world as well.

photographI grew up in the heart of southern Africa. It is truly magical with places of natural raw beauty and an incredible variety in wildlife that has been inspirational to me – especially in my art.

I am registered as a Professional Artist with The Society for All Artists and am part of the Association of Animal Artists and The Wildlife Artist Society International.

I am also a member of the Association of Open Photographers which has been, for me, a great to place to grow my photography skills.

painting en plein airIn 2015 I started teaching in User Experience, Drawing & Painting, and knitting. Yes, knitting is also a creative undertaking that I’ve done for many years and thoroughly enjoy, especially when I’m making something for one of the animal charities I’m involved in!

I like to believe that through teaching, I can help others experience the joy in creating their own website, pet portrait or knitted doggie jumper.  My courses, painting holidays and workshops will soon be available through Udemy and on this website.
