Personal Interests

The capture of a moment in time.
Seeing and hearing the past, even if it was only yesterday.
I'm learning how to draw with charcoal, pastels and watercolour. Also learning how other painters perceived and painted their world.
Enjoying the process of hand throwing, glazing and firing stoneware pots.
Enjoyment of classical and pop music.
Human Computer Interface
Like clay, computers allow for great flexibility of products in our lives. Equaly they can add confusion. I am interested in making the design as easy to interface with as possible.
