1998 – 2001:
Do you know how to code or how programmers think? I moved to London and discovered that that digital designers were expected to develop and make a usable product, which suited me far more than being an artworker. So I became a web designer and added HTML, Flash, JavaScript and Dreamweaver to my skillset.

Soon after arriving in London I studied HTML coding after hours in a little night school on Oxford Street. It was at the beginnings of the boom, and we were in high demand. I got a job as a web designer at a gaming company called Empire Interactive, designing the websites for all of their Playstation and PC games. It turns out I had little interest in computer games, but a high interest in digital design.
