Hi, I'm Shaveen Bandaranayake from Sri Lanka. I'm a LL.B (Hons) graduate from the University of London, a First Class Honours Computing (Multimedia) graduate from the Staffordshire University, UK and a M.A. Film graduate from Staffordshire University, UK.

I own an advertising agency in Sri Lanka and part of my career revolves around engaging with new and exciting concepts of communicating with different audiences. I studied for my LL.B almost a year ago and in order to effectively complete it, while having numerous work commitments, I developed a unique set of spider graphs to help me get an overview of my subjects. It became a great asset and thus, I thought I should share it with the world! :)
