Timothy Holt

I am an art enthusiast and have started a career in the arts, creating and selling working internationally through self-organising group exhibitions, designing press merchandise through Photoshop, Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) websites. I have taken part in the London Marathon thrice raising money for charity. A passionate, pro-active, organised and personable individual who is capable of working individually or as part of a team. I am a quick learner and would appreciate the opportunity to increase and improve my skills in different sectors. I would describe myself as a people person who works well with others at all ages and enjoy finding solutions to problems. I am looking for a challenging career that I will give my all.

I am currently in the process of developing and running a limited start-up company, merging my passion of arts, User Centered Design (UC), User Interface Design (UI), User Experience Design (UX) and sales.
