Began with an ambition to be an artist but switched to commercial art having realized artists are poor and more talented than me! Joined avionics company as an illustrator where, after showing aptitude, I was sponsored to study mechanical design. Working in design I became inspired by computers and their possibilities in design & graphics, so I embarked on a computer degree course (forsaken after 2 years due to pressures of work and family).
