For me there are fewer better ways to spend an afternoon than striking out on a long bike ride. It’s a way to keep healthy – physically and mentally, experience new places, and to push myself.
I discovered how much I love cycling when I moved back to London in 2014 and set about getting healthier by way of completing my first triathlon; and in 2015 I did just that.
Since then I’ve participated in over a dozen events ranging from sprint and olympic to half Ironman (IM 70.3) distances, and was in the early stages of conditioning for the 2020 full-distance Ironman UK when Covid‑19 flipped life upside down somewhat. You can follow my training for the 2021 event on on Strava.
Triathlon is a wonderful sport, but can seem a little daunting from the outside, so if you’re curious and fancy a go I'm happy to help break down any misconceptions or worries you might have – give me a shout if you do!
In the winter I swap the wheels for skis and head for the mountains for powder by day, and cheese and wine by night! There’s a similar enjoyment to cycling – exploring expansive resorts, honing my technique, and hanging out (eating cheese) with friends and family.
Even though I’m a London city-boy at heart, I’ve always enjoyed hiking, camping and the great outdoors, and we’re spoilt with places to enjoy those in the UK.
Hopefully the typographic details of this site go some way toward showing my passion for letterforms.
Having studied at the world renowned Typography and Graphic Communication Department at University of Reading, I picked up a passion for kerning, ligatures, and all things type. Design isn’t something that makes up much hands-on time from my day-to-day, but I’m a strong believer in solid typographic practices being the cornerstone to cohesive digital experiences. After all, the web is mostly just words!
It’s a designer cliché, but we all love ampersands, and are you really a designer without an ampersand tattoo (or three)?
