about me

I like looking at the world around me and the people in it, trying to understand how it works and fits together. That’s why I sketch and create art.

I design

Professionally I work as a UX designer at the Met Office. It’s a fascinating place to design with a wide remit from helping with day to day things such as can I hang my washing out, to safety of life such as Mountain Rescue and from retail with a crisp lorry forecast (they are tall and light so more at risk with gusts) to solar flares up in space from the sun. I am still learning about new services even after working there for five years.

I dance

Nia logoNia is fusion dance with mindfulness, combining the power and precision of martial arts, expression of dance and comfort and pleasure of healing arts. I start teaching Exeter’s first Nia class in Spring 2019.

I beard

I’m modelling a fortune telling beard I created for the 2014 British Beard and Moustache Championships in Bath in this picture. In 2019 (this year in fact!) it’s the World Championship in Antwerp. It’s a thing. Admittedly a niche thing.
