Who would be your dream client and what would you like to work on for them?

I love being involved in 'new' things so ideal clients are startups with a great original idea and a collaborative attitude. But producing something for Warp Records, perhaps interactive with audio and visual aspects would also be very cool.

So where did it all begin?

I actually started out by producing 3D graphics and animation for a CD-ROM company, with clients like Cisco and BT. As the industry was moving towards the internet I taught myself HTML & Flash. Then I started getting freelance work as both animation and websites were in great demand. I started out on my own, partnering with traditional design agencies.
