About me

Ambitious and driven, I am a creative person with a genuine love of all things design. Thriving on new ideas, I enjoy a collaborative approach with an emphasis on generating ideas quickly and discussing them openly. Having worked in agency, freelance and in-house environments I have developed a varied skill set, which includes branding, print and digital and art direction. I frequently visit galleries and exhibitions of all styles in order to absorb different aspects of design, and am rarely without a personal project outside of work to keep my creative hunger satisfied. I am ready for a new challenge and to keep learning and growing as a designer.   Beyond design, I follow the turbulent fortunes of a truly awful non-league football team, cycle and volunteer at Great Ormand Street Hospital as a play therapist.
