Credentials

It reassures some people to learn that I have a first-class degree from the University of Leeds, although it's not until I tell them that it's in English & German that they understand it really is as irrelevant as I say it is. Of far more importance is the practical experience I've gained over the years - product design, marketing & e-marketing, advertising, exhibiting ... I've done it all from both the customer and supplier side of things.

I've also taught what I know. Education is a big part of what Digital Spoke is about and the years spent teaching internet-related subjects at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge were very fulfilling. My speciality was Writing for the Web, but I designed and ran modules in Web Design and E-marketing too. ARU were unaware of concepts like web accessibility before I arrived and were teaching fairly out-dated practices, so during my time there, I sat on the course design steering committee and was a driving force in bringing their web-related modules up-to-date.

Before striking out alone, my internet career involved working at a mixture of dot-com start-ups and "new media" companies in London, where I'd pull all-nighters, lived half my life in the office and knew all the pizza delivery guys by name. I then experienced an altogether different working environment when I moved to Bradford to manage the website of the Yorkshire Building Society. With a couple of years under my belt, I was offered the opportunity to take over Digital Spoke in 2004 and jumped at the challenge.

So there you have it - more than you asked for and more than you'll ever need to know about me. The important stuff is available for you to see on the web, graphic and branding portfolio pages of this site.

Random Testimonial

Digital Spoke achieved all that we required, mainly because they brought vitality and ideas to the table - much more than a mastery of functionality and coloured boxes. What was most important was that they grasped the concepts right away and was always happy to discuss them.
