About me
Bio I’m a designer with a fearless drive to solve any visual, design, or strategy problem regardless of the medium. If I have not done it before, all the more appealing. Solving a business problem via design is exciting.I have several years experience. My creative journey has ventured into multiple areas which include, production, advertising, film and digital. Advertising is where I’ve honed my design skills. Working with clients on short deadlines for both global and domestic campaigns. Outside of advertising, I’ve crafted a creative style and brand which is continuously evolving. This visual aesthetic has been used in music, short films and events. Personal bits Boxing and combat sports is something I take huge enjoyment in. The discipline keeps me focused and in shape. Music production is an area which appeals to me. Photography and film are areas I’m looking to constantly develop. I use travelling as the environment to develop those skills.
