About

I am interested in problem-solving (visual and conceptual) and love things that inspire people to be better and make better things. I enjoy games, movies, concept art, music (lots of it) and generally great concepts that stir people to action or make their lives easier and more manageable. I don't claim to know everything just yet but if you show me I can learn quickly!

I don't really do programming but I have done lots of visual mocks, presentations and/or flowcharts of things that should move or interact. In my experience, more often than not this has saved countless hours of work rather than rushing too soon to coding implementation.

I generally prefer working on site and face to face with people as I believe you achieve much more efficient communication that way but I also have experience working remotely.

Have any questions? feel free to shoot me an e-mail or give me a call :)
