Film Finance Handbook

Since 1999

Digital creative

I began making web building last century with Netribution, a weekly magazine & vast data resource for indie filmmakers ("pioneering… hugely popular & influential" Time Out). Since then I've worked in creative design, UX, copy, strategy and video for a range of charity, indie film, music and non-profit projects.

I bring a design eye to open source projects, and work with the three best open CMSs, the three best CSS frameworks, and the best open CRM. Weaknesses include hyping things.
