Work: Have been an illustrator and web designer here at custardfish for 4 years! Too many years surfing the web mean I also get involved in clients web promotions and marketing such as SEO. Play:My spare time is often spent doing illustration, sometimes I take this further with some printmaking. The rest is usually spent playing games, watching films, or reading! (But mostly playing games…lots of them).

I’ve been with the OU since 2000 and am now writing my masters dissertation. I also play the violin relatively badly.
