For more than 20 years I worked in shipping for a specialist computer manufacturer, founded and based in Coventry.

Excluding a short stint I did at Warwick County CouncilI, helping install computers in their libraries and schools, I worked there pretty much straight out of college, rising up from my origins as a humble stores / goods-in operative to being solely responsible for the domestic and international movement of product from the UK headquarters; communicating with customers, freights carriers, and HMRC.

Unfortunately, in November 2009, I was made redundant as part of a series of 'corporate restructures', and I found myself out of work for the first time in more than two decades.

However, there is a saying that involves one door slamming shut, and other door opening, and this kinda proved to be true. I used circumstance to finally get me into University [ albeit about 25 years later than I'd hoped ] - first completing an Art & Design Foundation Year at Coventry University [ 2010 - 2011 ], and then a BA [ Hons ] in Illustration / Animation - again at Coventry [ 2011 - 2014 ]

Funny how things turn out sometimes.
