5 bits of advice to my teenage self…

  • Write down the funny conversations - otherwise you will forget them and those people won’t be around forever.

  • Being a teenager is hard but so is being a parent of a teenager.

  • It’s more about practice than talent so do the things you like. You will get better and you have time.

  • ABBA will come back in 2021 (not really advice but teenage me will really want to know this)

  • Take more photos. (I was a teenager well before camera phones and this might not be helpful advice anymore!)

About me

As a teenager…

I was well behaved at school – apart from getting told off for laughing quite a bit. I didn’t struggle academically but was not at all sporty. I liked drawing and loved old Hollywood films.

After school…

I had no idea what I wanted to do and felt a bit lost. I drifted through a strange mix of qualifications and jobs with no real goal in mind. My degree was in Social Ethics but a few years later I did Online Journalism, just as the internet was still new and ended up working in the area of Websites and Digital Content Creation.

Now I’m…

Co-founder of a Web and Graphic Design company where the biggest part of my job is designing websites – such as this one! I think it must be very helpful to know what you want to do from the start but I don’t think I would go back and change much about how I got to this point because each step brings friends and experiences that I wouldn’t want to lose.
