My main sphere of study engagement is that of UX (user experience) design, web based interfacing, multi-discipline creativity and design principles in digital publishing. Creating solutions for a variety of diverse goals. I have been developing hardware/ software projects using the Internet of Things on  systems as diverse as Earth Quake data visualisations using Arduino boards, to developing new  hardware configurations and software for people with communication disabilities. One of the new exciting areas I am exploring is 3D modelling of data, captured by wearable hardware prototypes within the university labs to better define the idea of space.

I am a final year student at the University of Plymouth reading BSc (Hons) Internet Design. I have BTEC HND in Furniture Design and have studied BSc Computing foundation at Plymouth Univeristy. My studies  have initiated me into the esoteric world of composing logical code such as Java,PHP, C++,JavaScript,node-red, MongoDB, MySQL,PHP, IBM Watson, Node-red, Arduino, Dialogflow and mark up language’s CSS/HTML/HTML5 and Adobe Muse. I’m hoping to grow a full Internet publishing tool set that will further my ability to design and manifest a unique web presence and seamless UX (user experience) for clients. I have  a sharp inquisitiveness into the thought processes behind Human User Interfaces (HUI) beyond my current studies.

My past projects and careers have included  hand making fanzines and posters for music events and bands. designing community information networks for fundraising and educational ventures home and abroad. And not least designing retail layouts , training teams and realising event environments for  a blue chip heritage organisation.

My nature means I relish the journey of learning , hard work and look towards new ways to compliment my background in management, design and communications to become a successful Internet based designer.

The things I do in my free time are often associated with computing but I also enjoy body surfing, vegan cooking, wood working, gardening and “enablinment” with handicapped people in the Cornwall area ( I work part time with Mencap alongside my full time studies). I play bass and guitar,read and enjoy visiting areas of architectural heritage. My latest venture is beginners Yoga.
