I'm currently based in the Philippines / Hong Kong and am heading back to London (I'm British) in a few weeks when I've wrapped up work here. I should be here Monday 3rd June and I'd like to attend the next IxDA meeting in London to meet you guys and network.
My questions are about London: What's the work situation like there? And who are the best people to contact?
I'm looking primarily for contract / freelance / consultancy work but full-time work is fine for the right company. My previous experience is wide-spread (finance / banking, industrial human factors, engineering software etc). My resume and portfolio can be seen at http://alansalmoni.com/resume.html and http://alansalmoni.com/portfolio.html. Ideally I'd like to stay in financial services because I like the challenge of getting design through all the business and technical challenges there but also wish to get experience in areas that I'm weak in (eg, mobile devices).
Any information would be appreciated, and I hope to meet you all soon.
