Description:

I have been lucky enough to have had two births – the first was in the very early 1970’s in England. I lived a very happy, if somewhat beige life, settling in London where I lived for over 10 years. I was then reborn when my wife and I moved to America where my life has taken many twists and turns, and has certainly been full of color! I’m what I consider to be a “born again” American – I chose to be here! (and yes, I’m a citizen, and very proudly so) Shortly before moving to the Pacific northwest we had our first baby, and shortly after we arrived we added another, both boys full of energy, questions and funny smells!

I like sunlight, my son’s laugher, chocolate and am firmly stuck in the late 80’s music-wise. Bon Jovi were always my favorite band, before Jonny Boy turned them into an elevator music knockoff.

Photoshop - dig into my brain


Photoshop is a huge beast of a program, often intimidating, usually frustrating, but when you have access to my brain, and my 25+ years of retouching experience, you’ll soon be retouching like a pro!

Whether you are a total newbie, or an industry professional looking to brush up skills or learn new ones, I’m here for you. In my career as a professional retoucher I’ve worked on projects for clients such as Adidas, Nike, Banana Republic, Apple, Converse and many more.


My specialities are composite work and advance skin smoothing, but I have seen and done pretty much everything and will work with your needs.
