Happy Husband  |  Proud Stepfather  |  Geek

I have a varied vocational background, from Sales and Marketing to Web Design. I have sold products, trained employees from Hairdressing Juniors to Bar Managers, prepared and given presentations for anything up to 300 people. I have worked for small, large and even global companies and run my own businesses successfully.
I relish being busy and love having a number of projects running concurrently.
Currently I run my own web design company and am based at The Creative Exchange in Edinburgh.

Director | arachnophobia design

JANUARY 2014 - PRESENT
Whilst at Edinburgh College I set up my own web design company, at first more than anything to gain some hands-on experience. It was to be aimed at those with little or no internet presence, those who may be a little 'scared of the web', hence the name.
I am now proud to be based at The Creative Exchange Leith, and with a growing number of loyal customers, arachnophobia design is going from strength to strength.
