I have worked in the field of arts for over 20 years. I started with a degree in Fine Art, then specialised in film and video for a while before settling in sound design. I produced, recorded and mixed many bands with some success during the 1990s. At the same time I was producing illustrations for various educational publications, these being mostly line drawings and cartoons. For 10 years up until 2010 I taught sound technology at FE and HE level at various places in the south of England, most notably the University Of Arts in London.
I have also designed CD covers, logos, posters and flyers.
I am now re-starting my work as a freelance illustrator based (at the present) in South London. I still continue to work with sound as well, currently producing work in the duo known as "X-Amount". I am also a keen photographer and graphic designer.
