I help people use digital technologies 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.

I regularly get asked for biographies so below are several you can use and amend as you see fit:
I enjoy helping people to use digital technologies, often for education, research and the cultural heritage sector. I love the web and my interests include designing for the web, open practices, multimedia, mobile technology and thinking about digital publishing. When I’m not sitting in front of a computer I like to ride my motorcycle, run and travel.
I currently work as a Digital Manager For Bristol Museums, Galleries & Archives where I am responsible for everything digital. I have previously worked for the University of Bristol (Jisc), the University of Leicester, and also run my own digital studio, tribehut.com.
