// About me
( Day-Nuh / Day-na Bah-ab Own-Yea-Nah-Kah-Lah )
I'm a creative media specialist, (born and raised in the beautiful island of Barbados) based in Hertfordshire UK. I have over 15 years experience and expertise in web design / development and graphic design, along with a good track record of producing compelling and attractive web environments. I'm a professional and innovative problem solver who works well within teams.
I aspire to bring the clients ideas alive by providing a unique and practical web and print presence.
I have a versatile and wide range of skills which keep me motivated and interested in different ways of approaching design. My clientele (businesses and individuals) continues to grow and spans over several countries; such as United Kingdom, United States, Barbados, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Trinidad, Nigeria and Bahamas. Take a look at my work.
When I'm not designing or coding, you'll find me pushing my body to its limits with Beachbody workouts (Insanity Max, Asylum, HardCorp, Focus T25 and Turbofire). I also like food (hence the workouts), dancing and the performing arts, photography, being with family and friends, learning and experiencing new things, going to the theatre, meeting new fascinating people, personal development, fashion, cosmetology, travelling, jet-skiing.
