About me

I am an extremely creative individual with a diverse range of creative skills. I have gained a broad range of knowledge and experience within the creative industry. I have worked within a variety of design-led and sales-led environments. This has allowed me to develop my commercial understanding, and the ability to design with the consumer in mind. I am looking to progress my creative career within a design led, dynamic company where I can utilise and further develop my broad range of creative skills within a team environment.
