I’ve been around the internet since late 1995. At that point I was teaching myself web design, and began to take on clients. Around 1997 I took to selling imported toys from Japan and that launched me into the world of advertising. Having been an artist ever since I can remember the transition to being digitally creative was the next step in my evolution. In 2002 I received a certificate in web design from Thomson Learning Direct, which just established on one page that I was competent to do what I had been doing for seven year by that point. While I regret not getting more of a formal education, I enjoyed the learning experience of jumping in and being in on the ground floor.
