How long have you been part of the Shape team?

I joined Shape back in 2019. I originally joined Shape as a web developer, but over the past few years, I have also worked on illustrations and animation.

What's your favourite aspect of working at Shape?

I love the team at Shape, whether inside or outside of work. Everyone is really nice and fun to be around. I also enjoy the variety of work I do. I get to build different websites with different branding styles, and in between projects, I get to create illustrations like icons or infographics, and animation showreels.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

My main life is centred around my English bull terrier, Dipper. He is a cheeky boy that I love to bits. We enjoy walks around the open fields and cuddles on the sofa. The breed also inspired me to write my very own children’s picture book, “Not the bed for my rump”.

I am also captain of a local hockey team, which I play with every week. It is my favourite sport and have been playing it since I was 13 years old. Another hobby of mine is baking. I love to bake all sorts of tasty treats, from cookies to cakes to macaroons and cupcakes. I make sure to bring some into the office. Andy’s favourite are my butterfly cupcakes.

Tell us more about your book.

My main inspiration for my book was my first dog, Pebble. English bull terriers get a bad rep but are actually very sweet, loving and funny dogs. I wanted to share with the world how wonderful and hilarious the breed is. So, I wrote and illustrated my own picture book and successfully raised enough money to get it printed through Kickstarter. I sold over 400 copies around the world. Lots of people have sent me pictures of their bull terriers with my book, and it brings a smile to my face.

Sadly, Pebble passed away in 2022. She was a big part of my life and also Shape’s, being the company’s mascot. She is very much missed and still in our memories
