Paris Roubaix Cobbles

Paris Roubaix Challenge!


Next week, I’ll be in France, waking up at some insanely early hour and getting on a bike to (attempt to) cycle the 170km distance between Paris and Roubaix (technically, I’ll be starting in Compiègne, but who cares), some of which will be on “roads” like this: I’m actually kinda dreading it, but at the… Continue Reading +

27 Things I've Learnt

27 things I’ve learnt in 27 years


I turned 27 yesterday. Whaaa? When did that happen? It only feels like yesterday that I was still in Uni spending far too much time on my PS2 and playing geeky card games like Magic the Gathering…yeah, I was one of ‘those’ people (still am).

5 More Minutes!

Just 5 Minutes More!


I’ll let you in on a little secret – I never considered myself naturally good at design (still don’t).

2011 Web Summery

A yearly look back: Web Design 2011


Before 2011 is a distant memory I want to take a little time to look back and see how far the web design industry has come, for me it’s been a hectic year combining working on loads of different things and getting the chance to be part of some new and interesting projects that have… Continue Reading +

Pistol Annies - Hell on Heels

My top five albums of 2011


Music plays a big part in my life, and also with my bank balance, whether that’s going to gigs or simply downloading more albums than is good for me! I also have quite an eclectic taste and as such, I frequently subject (they might say “audibly rape”) the guys I work with to anything from… Continue Reading +
