A bit about me

I like design, both online and in the real world, and designing (mostly online). I am a big fan of Arne Jacobsen and Hans Wegner, and love travelling. I’m interested in all forms of media, from traditional print to radio, broadcast and exciting new media stuff.

I lived in Denmark for 6 months in 2006, where I learnt a new language, experienced a different culture and had a great time, my experience there continues to influence my design work.
