About me

For the past 14 years, I have worked for myself as a designer, animator, illustrator, compositor, UI & UX designer and creative director. Despite my love for all things aesthetic, my innate passion for problem-solving has led me to create TAXO'D - A tool that helps fellow freelancers / self-employed focus on what they love doing best, by removing tax-bill anxiety and the mundane task of managing their day to day business finances.

Other side projects include; The Prints Jackson Project - One song every month until the day I die. Myself and musician PJ produce a unique song + artwork each month. We are 30 months in - 30 songs + art in and have had the chance to collaborate with amazing artists such as Jim Ward [At the drive in] and artists James Oliver [The lost prophets]. Virgin tipped PJ as one of the best innovations in music 2014.
