I am a graphic artist and designer and I have been working mainly in newspaper design for the last 27 years. Latterly with The Scotsman newspaper based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
I have also worked with printing businesses and on a variety of freelance and short-term contracts both prior to and after my time at the Scotsman so I have a good deal of experience outwith the newspaper industry. I have experience in traditional film animation and flash animation, audio and video software and Dreamweaver and some earlier web tools. I have worked professionally in the music and recording industry in the 80s and 90s. I also draw and paint and I was a cartoonist and illustrator for most of the 80s and early 90s in tandem with my career in music
