About me
I am a graphic designer and photographer with over eight years of international professional experience across in-house, studio and freelance roles. While working full-time, I have also successfully managed my own small business, focusing on corporate branding and photography. I am differentiated by my creative and corporate experience in both design and photography. This gives me the ability to produce publications that harmoniously combine photographic and design elements, to work corroboratively with other creatives and to adapt quickly to changing client needs. I am currently the Publishing & Photography Lead at Growth & Grace Collective in London, a networking organisation on a mission to empower and connect professional women.
