Interview presentation

A flash presentation i had to create at short notice for a interview at Sheffield Hallum university, its a bit large. It wasn't a problem at the time as it was running of a pen drive might do something similar for my new portfolio website

My old Portfolio website

Thought i would post it here as it was kind of a landmark for me even thou it lacked information and had too much scrolling to get between pieces.

this is going to be updated over the next week or two i may keep the old site online for a bit but it will eventually be taken down.
