About me
Certified UX Designer | Content Creator at Adeptales I have worn many hats - started out as a photographer, which led me onto tv production, which introduced me to advertising. I discovered UX Design (or did it discover me? 🤔) and spent the last year studying at UX Design Institute, and researching and writing content for Adeptales. A Black British History resource. In my spare time you can catch me with a camera in my hands - capturing what I see.
Projects
  • If My Hair Could Talk
    If My Hair Could TalkMy friend Chi Chi asked me to write a poem for her Graduation Show. The theme was focused on our hair, heritage and our future. I have had a love/hate relationship with my hair as I didn't understand why it never did what I wanted it to do... So I flipped it round and thought if my hair could talk, what would it say? Thank you to Chi Chi for this opportunity, writing from the heart is never easy and your challenge pushed me in the right direction :)
