I was responsible for all design and output to film. As well as NetGamer I had other time commitments & freelance work on various other magazines at Paragon, such as: PC Games, Play, Nintendo 64, PC Windows, Mac Made Easy, to name a few. This job was very deadline- intensive and dependent on close team work.

Kre-8-tiv Design.

Graphic designer (England)
I was employed by Kre-8-tiv design, part of Marine Electronic Services Ltd, as an in-house designer to design point of sale items such as catalogues, brochures and price lists, as well as forms and magazine advertisements etc. Kre-8-tiv Design was set up for the purpose of attracting freelance work to gain extra revenue for MES Ltd. Being the sole designer I took all briefs from conception to print and was required to work to budgets and deadlines. During my time there I learnt self-reliance and was then able to work both autonomously and as part of a large team including printers and manufactures.


1989 - 1991

Various Jobs.

Non-design (England)
During this time I had a variety of contract jobs whilst I considered where I wanted to go in my life. I had always been keen on and good at visual art. During this time I became very graphically aware, seeing design applied in the real world, its effect on the public and the different types of materials used in the construction. These jobs have also helped my communication skills, by bringing me into contact with all types of people. I decided then to obtain the formal qualifications in the necessary disciplines to start my career as a designer.

Royal Navy.

WEM(0) Weapons Engineering Mechanic
(Worldwide deployment)

Duties included the repair and support of on-board systems such as telephones, main broadcast, hydraulics and weapon systems; fire-fighting and breathing apparatus support. Also during my time in the Royal Navy I travelled to many different countries such as: Denmark, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Germany, Portugal, Gibraltar and down the Ivory Coast of Africa. This was a most valuable experience, which gave me a great insight into some very different cultures. The Navy also taught me team work, resourcefulness, punctuality and how to work under all sorts of conditions and pressures.
