About me

From London, based in Melbourne (Oct 2019) **Any creatives in Melbourne - message for collabs/meetups!** • Retouching portfolio available on request. • I started work as an Art Researcher in the gaming industry for Sony PlayStation, later moving into the museum sector as an environmental Graphic Designer. Throughout this time I've also been working as a freelance Photographic Retoucher in high-end fashion, still life, and architecture. I've recently graduated from Information Experience Design at the Royal College of Art where I was creating work around wild narratives / augmented ecology / anthrozoology.
