I attended various schools, obtaining G.C.E. ‘A’ level art with art history. I attended the Sussex College of Design in Worthing where I studied three dimensional design and graphic design. I was the first student to leave with diplomas in both subjects. I worked for a company called Peregrine Designs where I designed mostly furniture but also other three dimensional objects plus their point of sale. After a further year, I went to work as a graphic designer for another company in Worthing.
