How I landed an illustration job at Google with no qualifications

In my mid-twenties I got a job working with the Mountain View Google Plus team as a digital illustrator. I’m 34 now.

This video covers my story between University in London in 2003 and landing the job when I was living in Tokyo in 2012.

The film includes plenty of visual references to my artwork for your perusing pleasure.

Let me know what you think. Did I scam the system?

I now work mainly as a coach, but also take on occasional illustration jobs.
