I'm from the Lake District, went to university in the great city of Hull before heading to Manchester where I ended up working for Mainframe; though I now commute to Manchester from Sheffield every day.

After working as an animator for 9 years, I now design and develop animation software. I created MASH for Autodesk Maya, I then contracted on Maya for around 3 years after the MASH acquisition. Following that I contracted with the Bifrost UX team for 5 months. MASH was considered for a Sci-Tech Oscar in 2018.

I'm now leading the charge on Cavalry, which you can read about here, and here.

Away from the computer I'm a lindy hopper, ex chef and a fastidious coffee/gin/wine drinker.
