Cartoonist, writer, colourist, letterer and editor. After leaving art college I worked for animation legend Bob Godfrey as his ghost artist on Henry's Cat.

Co-wrote and drew for Marvel US. Created Arthur Pilkington: Chartered Barbarian for the comicsGas & UT and created Edith Appleby: O.A.P Warrior for Brain Damage.

Crossed over to the dark side in 1993 and became an editor working for Marvel UK on titles including: Beavis & But-head, Ren & Stimpy,Rugrats and the Glam Metal Detectives. In 2000 I took a six-year break to pursue animation before joining Titan Publishing and editing titles such as: Roy of the Rovers, Lenore, Nemi, SpongeBob Square Pants, Pocket Gods, Matt Hatter, Wallace & Gromit and Adventure Time.

In 2013 I was also a co-winner on Come Dine With Me.

In my spare time I avoid gardening and spending time with the wife and kids by going to the cinema whenever I can, writing a blog about my experiences at said entertainment venue and drawing comic strips featuring a 5' tall psychotic granny by the name of Psycho Gran
