A little about me

Married 25 years, two daughters currently at university, eldest just qualified to be a Maths Teacher. 

 

Enjoy a game of golf in the summer months (getting worse!), North Sea ‘rock’ angling in the winter catching cod mainly. (I did catch a 16lb cod a few years ago).

 

Try my hardest to stay sort of fit, boot camp three times a week, Dog walking, cycling etc. try to get out as much as possible. 

My standout skills are in Prepress, workflow and Colour Management ensuring the ‘files’ are correctly prepared to give the customer the best possible result.
