Many Years

Pretty standard really...
I met the love of my life

Met my wife to be in a blaze of alcohol and debauchery, just as all good relationships should start.
Adopted Martin

We adopted our little fluff ball of a bunny called Martin - you can see him doing a James Bond impression in the gallery.
Moved to London

In pursuit of the London life we moved to London in 2008.
Bought a London Flat
2011

Having saved like mad over several years (and with a little help) we bought our wonderful flat.
Got Married
2014

The alcohol and debauched blaze of passion still rumbles on 10 years since it started. Time to tie the knot.

what i do

I've worked in online interactive video advertising for the past 5 years as a developer, a senior programmer, a project manager, producer and client services executive.

In my non-work life (aka my not-so-spare-time) I swim, run, make games, rock climb, photograph pretty things and bake bread. You can check out some of my photography below in the gallery.

There are a plethora of projects that I've worked on over the years, some commercial and some just for fun. Examples below...
