Hello. As you’ve no doubt established by now, my name is Dave Allen. I’m the Marketing Project Manager and graphic designer at andythornton.com. I manage the website structure and brand direction.

I like to get outdoors as much as possible. In the past this was usually on a bike. I was a founding member of a mountain biking club, and have been cycling regularly since 1992, more recently on a road bike. Nowadays I explore the landscape with a camera. I have a decent collection of cookery books but don’t use them half as much as I say I do. Music has always been important.
