About me

I am a freelance senior graphic designer with ten years experience working at design studios, marketing agencies and publishers in both in-house and client facing roles. I have a background in designing and art directing publications, events, brand identities and digital marketing. 2017 has been the year of learning, rediscovering and breaking free, both in life and work. Earlier in the year I studied Programming and User Experience Design part-time with General Assembly, I’m rediscovering my love of illustration and I have broken free from the “9 — 5” and ventured into the freelance world. I have also learnt how to ride a bike around London and a spin studio and climbed another mountain, (most of) Mount Everest. Yeah, I'm amazing and have huge calves.
