About

I'm inspired by bold and colourful design, honest and colourful characters, challenging and colourful art and non-ironic smooth music.

It would be wasteful and unnecessary, to divide my work up between various guises and enterprises when my approach to all of it is exactly the same and the results, strikingly similar. I decide to do a thing, think about it a lot, then get it done with as much colour, honesty and love as possible.

In 2000 I gave up on education. To date I've written, recorded and released eight of my own records and played on at least four of my friends', toured the UK, Europe, China and America as artist, tour manager or driver and written multiple travel journals, designed and made jackets for pop bands and tap dancers, promoted up to one hundred all-ages, punk rock shows in Yeovil, edited and self-published six fanzines about the Yeovil music scene, designed t-shirts and tour posters for tonnes of my favourite artists and hand-made bags, cards and teddy bears.

Let's not forget, I was also part of a team that won the Yeovil & District Table Tennis third division title and represented Somerset county playing tennis for three years. I avidly follow Yeovil Town FC.

Be in touch by email or social media, I'd love to hear from you.
