Years ago, while walking down Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh, I had a vision of working with massive digital installations, at the time these did not exist and I had no idea what this meant. My partnership with Preston brought out the Borg in me and over the years, we at Pixel Project have turned this vision into a thriving, digital reality.
My favourite quote from Star Wars is “There is always a bigger fish”.
With this in mind, I try not to take things too personally or too seriously, though, I’m not always successful.
I adore cats but I don’t like “cat things”.
