// ME ME ME //
I was born on the day that Mark Rothko died. I believe in reincarnation.
//   I graduated as an illustrator, became a designer, then became an illustrator again. So I’m an illustrator who gets frustrated by bad kerning and when I hear 'rivers' and 'widows' in the same sentence, I know there hasn't necessarily been a family tragedy.
//   When I left college I tried to be a political illustrator, but I just couldn’t make ends meet. Then, at an exhibition of Guardian cartoonists I overheard the curator tell someone that some of their cartoonists struggled to pay their rent. It was at that point I decided to swap politics for good economics and get a design job that paid.
//   My career so far has taken me to LA, Las Vegas, Seattle, Calgary, Portland, Chicago, Beijing, Milan, Paris, Munich, Venice and a wind farm off the coast of Liverpool, in a small boat, in a gale. Other than that, the water has been fairly calm, blue, and full of fish.
//   I came back to illustration through the back door… By working as an independent designer and creating the illustration work myself. I also had the help of branding agency Wordsearch who gave me multiple opportunities.
//   I’m like a clown who wants to be taken seriously, or a serious actor armed with a water pistol.  
//   I have a range of talents, bags of experience and a computer screen unnecessarily big for someone with such a small head. My desk is cluttered but my mind is free and there is always space between my ears for another interesting project.
