I'm a web designer who used to live on a boat.

I'm currently Creative Director at, a website which is kinda like Facebook meets YouTube meets Just Giving. Basically we use documentaries and political films to create a focus around which discussion and activism can happen. And I've got the coolest job because I get to go "oooh .. let's do this".

Here's a few random words that might tell you more about me .. or might not .. on the off chance you're bothered:
