A number of years ago I took voluntary redundancy from my job in IT so I decided to use the money to go travelling around South East Asia. This is where I completed my first design job while staying in a little hut on the beach in Koh Phangan. Jack (adopted English name) was opening a new bar and asked if me if I could create a flyer for the opening night. With no laptop and only the resorts email machine to use, I set about creating the flyer using the incredibly flexible program Microsoft Paint and use the money to go travelling around South East Asia.
That was the start. When I got back from travelling I decided to go to Greenwich University to learn more about Graphic Design. I have not looked back since.
