Spending the last 5 years at Lonelyleap film leading design & art direction across a range of branded content, film, animation and digital projects.

I was awarded ‘App of Year’ Gold by the Society of Publication Designers for my work on Interactive Magazine 'Stipla'. Competing against Wired, National Geographic and New York Magazine. I co-created the magazine as part of small team.
