I work within the arenas of multimedia and e-learning and I write, speak and build things for the web. I am based in Bristol.
During University I started a small web design business in 2003 called tribehut which is still knocking out quality projects. My day job is to write, speak and advise on using multimedia for teaching and learning, research and the cultural heritage sector, all under the umbrella of e-learning.

I work as a JISC Digital Media advisor for the national service JISC Digital Media at the University of Bristol.

I love the web and my interests include designing for the web, open practices, multimedia, mobile technology and thinking about digital publishing.
When I am not sitting in front of a computer I like to ride my motorcycle, run and travel.
