Engineer, Photographer and Digital Designer.
I originally started my working life as an engineer and ended up with my own factory employing up to 55 people, we were involved in the motorcycle industry as a manufacturer of motorcycles and component parts.
I was responsible for the design and manufacturing of the Goodman HDS 1200, we also manufactured brake discs as replacements for other manufacturers, we also carried out sub-contract work for other blue chip companies as well, I have experience in motorcycle builds up to 500 units, with the manufacture and procurement of components throughout Europe for third world contracts for Africa, South America, as well as MOD contracts in the UK, we used to make all our own frames and associated components in house.

I am also a digital designer who has 20 years experience in a freelance capacity, starting off as a hobby and then a business.
I am also a keen photographer and motorcyclist, having ridden through many other countries with my camera, that was what initially got me interested in digital designing.
I was born in the U.K. lived in Canada for ten years and have dual nationality, I have at various times worked in many other places, I now live between the U.K. and Bulgaria, I have two grown up children and I am happily married to a woman from Kenya.
I started with photography and started learning photoshop CS2 following quickly through to Illustrator, InDesign and After Effects, a few years ago I did a lot of animation with flash, I now use Adobe CC suite 2020, with selective plugins, I have done some Wordpress and Adobe DX
I love doing this sort of work and get a great detail of satisfaction with every completed project.
I am available for work so please don't hesitate to get in touch.
