My Bio
This is all out of date, so sorry about that.

On deviantART, I'm a Message Network Administrator (MN@). We work under fourteenthstar to keep dAmn at least moderately sane. I also select Daily Deviations - I focus on the Pixel Art section and occasionally ANSI art (my previous role was a GD for Pixel Art).

I have been responsible for organising the first and third 'official' deviantART UK meets; both in London. Feel free to contact me with any ideas for meets or other deviantART related activities in the UK, I'll probably be happy to help out. I run the britain account to help UK deviants find and organise meets in their area - i publicise upcoming meets in the journal.

I am also the co-founder and operator of #alt.uk, the UK channel on the deviantART IRC network, and #britain on dAmn, a channel for British deviants on dA and discussing meets. Pop into one of them some time!

In the world outside deviantART, I'm a student at Portsmouth University in the UK currently studying a degree in Digital Media.

back to a tick

back to a tick

August 2nd 2007 back to a tick As of today I'm no longer on deviantART staff. It's a real shame, but I really just haven't had the time to split between my studies, my job and my duties here. To be honest, I really should have stepped down before now - what with my final year of university coming up i'm going to have even less time. This is kind of a big deal to me; I've been on deviantART staff since the end of 2003 and I've done a few things: gallery director, contest director, message network admin, and they've all been great fun. Some of the great people I've had the pleasure to work with: voodoo-prophet (https://www.deviantart.com/voodoo-prophet) halfliquid (https://www.deviantart.com/halfliquid) :devrap

April 2nd 2007 #gamersgamers - a dAmn channel for you know who For a while now I've been looking for a channel I can chat about videogames in, and for a long while I was planning on starting my own one, since all the ones already in existence were abandoned. I even negotiated the use of #gaming from its original founder, and brought kirby (https://www.deviantart.com/kirby) onboard. However, just as I was starting to look for mods for this new channel, LazyGunn (https://www.deviantart.com/lazygunn) informed me of a gaming channel already in existence that had a small following already. It's run by KatiBear (https://www.deviantart.com/katibear) and it's pretty hoppin' already - and now that Kati had agreed to bring on myself and :devki

Portsmouth devMEET - April 14th - Final Approach

Portsmouth devMEET - April 14th - Final Approach

April 2nd 2007 Portsmouth devMEET - 14th April 2007 A Portsmouth meet has been long long overdue, so I believe it's time to set a date and get organised. The date I'm picking is Saturday April 14th. Provisional plans include: :bulletblue: Spinnaker Tower. Although a lot of Portsmouth locals have probably done it before I'm sure there's some people who'll want to go up it. For those who have done it before or otherwise don't want to, there's plenty of things to do in Gunwharf Quays (shopping center). :bulletblue: Aspex Gallery. It's recently moved from the middle of nowhere to a much more accessible location and a much nicer building, and
