Look, behind that desk - it's an ex-librarian - it's a media developer - it's... DIGITAL DIVA! Able to negotiate new software in a single bound! Faster than a speeding laser printer!

Actually, my estimation of my own abilities isn't that obnoxiously high, but this is an idea that I would have had to flesh out for a class assignment if I'd carried on with my course last year. ("Place yourself as a superhero within a 3D environment.") No regrets that I didn't finish the course (Foundation degree in Multimedia), as I've learned far more in my job than I did in class.

Anyway, the source for this illustration is one of the few photos taken of me that I actually like. (It was taken 15 years ago, but hey, who's counting?)
