I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Nice day with my parents in Wales. We visited a church in a small village with a tree that is around 5,600 years old.

First day at my new job today. I’m leaving the freelance life to join a team at a well known organisation in the UK. Looking forward to it, but inevitably a bit apprehensive this morning. First time I won’t be my own boss for 7 years.

Bank holiday coffee by the lake.

Realising how important it is that I make time to read fiction. Getting into a good novel really calms my mind and stops it running away with itself. Finished reading The Hobbit today and just started the latest Red Rising.

It’s been a summer of cricket, great finish to the test match. Hats off to Ben Stokes 🏏

I’ve been struggling with my depression again the last couple of months. I’ve been lent a massive Lego kit to build, it’s great for occupying my mind.

I started a blog on my portfolio site today. The first post is about some of the utility sites I use to find a starting point at the beginning of a project.

Please to get the first of my new service pages on up on my design website. Anyone in need of a marketing website for their small business or project, get in touch!

Testing Quill out since my websites have all just moved to a new server.

Watching the Play Off final and cheering on Aston Villa, seems like they are on the way the premier league meaning Derby aren’t. Can’t be having the Rams promoted.

There’s probably some wonkiness that needs to fix, so if you see anything please let me know.

Updated the design of my blog so that it’s more in line with my new portfolio site. I’ve ended up switching to use more Indie Web post kinds to categorise content instead of the WordPress post formats.

Began to play around with the theme for my blog tonight, updating the colours etc so that things match my portfolio site. Sass really is awesome for that. Change a colour variable and it changes everywhere. Love it.

I forgot what the whole applying for jobs process was like, having to update profiles all over the web on various different websites which advertise jobs in the creative industries. Started to breathe some new life into my Dribbble account and actually start making use of Behance.
