    Hey everyone! Good to see a nice community!
    I'm currently a designer for a small media company up in Northumberland. I mainly do front end design, HTML, CSS, (bits of jQuery and Javascript). Plus I've done some UI and XCode work for iOS apps.
    My main love, more than anything though is animation, art, modelling, texturing, rigging, all that sort of stuff.... It's just a lot harder to find the work there.
    Currently working on refreshing my portfolio so I will be posting that shortly, when I actually get time to do it!
    Anyhoot! Off to have a pop around the forums :)

    I only live opposite the Blake haha :) Probably passed my house tons of times!

    In Blyth I used to live up by Asda, my family still live there! Any favourite watering holes?

    I'd go as far to say I've probably seen you before! lol
    Not so much in Blyth for places to go atm, I used to pop to the Blake when I lived there. Since work moved to Alnwick in November and it's opposite a pub that's pretty much the only place I get a chance to go to these days!
    Often get dragged out to Olivers near the old police station though.

    Olivers, haha. Not been in there for a long long time.

    The Blake is rough as a badgers now like haha. 5 old men and their dogs etc.

    lol! Everyone says it's rough as hell... I never had a problem in there. Was only in a couple months ago... Maybe I missed all the fun

    Yet another canny lad joins in. Seriously, we need the forum equivalent of a show of hands to see how many active geordies are running around here.
