Describe what you do at BrightCarbon

I help presentation designers be more productive in PowerPoint through the design of add-ins, delivery of training, and speaking at events.

Two teenagers for my sins, Connor and Kaitlyn. All three of us supported by my incredible wife, Becky. She’s my rock.

Pets

Dougal the Labradoodle, Lol and Dan the cats.

Drinks

I’m Scottish, so a really good single cask single malt, sipped slowly next to an open log fire. Followed by lots of coffee the next day.

Degrees

Centigrade or Fahrenheit? As a Brit living in the US, I’m very confused!

B. Eng. Communications Engineering from Plymouth.

3 words that describe me

Fancy dress costumes.

Couldn't do my job without
