I’m a web designer and theology student at the University of St Andrews. The former is my job and it means that I am able to fund my way through the latter.
Web design interests me a lot. In creating websites, I try and push the boundaries of what is possible in web design – reaching more people in more exiting, creative and accessible ways. I am committed to creating the best possible design for churches and charities – so often, churches are fantastic, but their online presence is more likely to put someone off visiting than encourage them to visit. Therefore, I create websites that allow churches to show the best of themselves on the internet. A lot of my latest design work can also be found in my informal design display board.
Outside of web design and my studies, I also enjoy writing and playing piano, guitar and various random percussion instruments – I have an amateur appreciation of folk music and try to play along when I can. I blog about web design but also theology, the Bible, feminism, book reviews and what’s going on on the internet.
In the future, I would love to go into full time ministry (hopefully still with a large amount of media/writing/design work on the side), possibly abroad. I would love to chat about this with you if you have suggestions or ideas.
Cool things I’ve done
Here are some of the cool things I’ve had the pleasure of doing:
- I spent a year as an intern in a fantastic church, Projekt:Gemeinde, in Vienna.
- I was an organiser for a “Who needs Feminism” event in St Andrews, raising the profile of feminism in the University. You should definitely check out the fantastic photos.
- I frequently lead worship in small and larger groups
