About me

Over ten years' experience in design, marketing and branding, I’ve consciously sought out opportunities to work with organisations that inspire people, from arts venues including the Roundhouse and Almeida to start ups and social enterprises. I tackle design projects such as branding, campaigns and website design using my combination of digital and craft skills. I thrive when making creative contributions to busy projects, expertly building relationships and managing stakeholders.
