About me

I’m an excitable graphic designer, illustrator and artworker contributing vibrant, practical design solutions for branding and creative content briefs within a progressive agency culture. I was raised in Perth, Australia, with a creative mind fuelled by Steven Spielberg, sporting logos and gig posters. I relocated to London in 2017, escaping my fear of spiders and more importantly progressing my experience within a collaborative environment. I’m excited to start the next chapter in my career and am hungry to contribute my strong skills, enthusiasm and somewhat quirky humour to a brand new creative team.
