I come from a background of design, advertising, reprographics and print and have worked in the design and print industry for more than 20 years. I joined Azure Printing (then SHAW Printing) in 1997 and have seen my role evolve to attapt to the many technological changes that have happened in the printing industry.
Away from work one of my main interests is in photography and after several years of part time study I became professionally qualified as a photographer in 2005. I have since then been proudly awarded as an Associate Member of The Royal Photograpic Society, the oldest photographic society in the world.
I am also a keen musician and play bass guitar in a North East band called Growing Robots.
I have been married for 12 years and have 2 young children whom I enjoy spending as much time with as possible.
