About me
A highly skilled graphics professional, with many years’ experience, I am Apple to the core, and extremely proficient in Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Adobe XD), with additional skillls in Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel), Wordpress, Sharepoint and Citrix. I also have a working knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Creative and innovative, able to take and interpret briefs, set and meet deadlines, as well as control costs, I am committed to attention to detail and efficiency while maintaining artistic integrity. Innately curious and always researching new technology and design ideas, I am passionate about traditional production values, emerging technologies and cutting-edge design. Originally from Canada, I now live in the UK and have clients around the world.
