About me

 

I am a textile designer with 14 months experiences with textile design, graphic design and product development. In my previous roles I have been part of developing textile products, surface designs and digital designs. These positions have been in small studios and teams where I wore many hats. I could be a designer one day, administrations officer the next and a project manager the third. I possess BA (textile design) and advanced CAD and MS office skills. With a passion for materials, tech and craft; customer relations, ethics and organization; I aspire to be a significant member of the creative industries.
