I am originally from the UK. In 2003 I spent a year in Maine studying fine art photographic print making. A year later I moved to Vermont to work as a studio assistant at an atelier specialising in 19th Century photographic printing processes, mainly copper plate photogravure. While working at the studio, I also built my endurance by loading UPS trucks in the early hours of morning. After three years of being paid minimum wage to print beautiful objects for famous artists and loading tons of Omaha Steaks into vans I decided to move full time into web development, something I had also been doing on the side.
Since 2007 I have worked for two interactive agencies, Deluxe Digital Media in Berkeley, Ca and Threespot in Washington, DC. At Deluxe Digital Media I lead front-end developer, working on adventure travel industry and e-commerce sites. My role at Threespot had me working as a senior developer on non-profit and government work. I now live in Pittsburgh and work as a UI Engineer for American Eagle Outfitters.
