About me
Creative based in London. My style is flexible and jumps between Illustration and Graphic Design but always brings in an element of humour and a handmade quality. I’ve created work for food brands, theatre and comedy and exhibition spaces. Having worked with large design companies in studio management and technical management prior to switching to freelance design, I’ve been lucky enough to develop a great knowledge of design processes, project management and technical processes to apply to my own work and am therefore confident handling the full lifecycle of a design project I also contribute as both designer and producer to Persona Collective, a small site specific immersive company run by myself and friends specialised in the areas of theatre direction, urban architecture, photography and lighting. www.personacollective.co.uk

    The Candidate - The Langham Working Men's ClubThe Candidate was a site-specific, immersive theatre piece that was devised and staged by Persona Collective in 2019 at The Langham Club; a traditional working mens club on Green Lanes, near where we all live in Haringey, north London. The club has existed for over 100 years but its numbers are really declining.  The show examined and subverted the concept of ‘the family’. This was derived from the place itself, which for many years has functioned as a communal, intergenerational living room, w
