About me

I have a permissive attitude to design and absorb inspiration from many different sources such as film, art, music and technology. I observe daily life with a critical eye, learning how culture helps shape identities. I never restrict myself to my own medium, allowing myself to be inspired by film-makers, writers, artists and inspirational characters that surround me. Creative technology has always played a role in my life and I am intrigued with it’s place in culture and how creatives use it as a tool for artistry. As a result, I’ve worked in production and technology integration for over five years and designed installations, events and experiential campaigns for some of the worlds leading brands. Education - Currently studying for a Degree (Hons) part time in Business and Business Management – September 2014 Available as a freelance set-designer Proficient in the following design tools: - Vectorworks (3D/2D Design) - SketchUp (3D Design) - CAD (2D Design) - Sketch (Design) Musical Society - Open University The Music Society has been in existence for 30 years and is affiliated to the OU Students Association. The society allows me to interact with other OU undergraduates to share and collaborate on musical trends from all genres. I manage my own site called #FFFFFF, a portfolio of my own creative inspiration and influences - www.hashtagffffff.com
