I am a Senior Designer and the Studio Manager at RLA Bournemouth. With over 25 years in the design industry I have extensive experience in all aspects of design – traditional (branding, packaging, DM etc.), print and print production, digital (front end website design, CMS integration, ecommerce, HTML email and online advertising) and events (exhibition stand design, large format graphic design, 3D visualisation and on-site stand build management).
I am a keen mountain biker spending many weekends over the Purbecks or on the back roads of Dorset and Hampshire, chilling out with an audio book playing through the headphones. And, when I’m not on a bike, I will be found up a mountain with a large glass of cider in my hand.
‘Team Member’ for Kenyon International Disaster Management – based in Bracknell, giving on-site support in the UK – responding with recovery and assistance in crisis and mass fatality events.
Corner man for my brother (Southampton based cage fighter). I’m often found with a sponge in one hand and an ice pack in the other. I also double as a ‘punch bag’ for my brother when getting in shape for the next fight with too many broken hands and scars to mention.
I am the Studio Manager & Senior Designer at RLA Group.
