About me
Having built knowledge and craft over my career as a Designer, Production Manager and Brand Director, I offer a unique blend of management and creativity to my work methods. Possessing the benefit of a multifaceted background I am looking to work with brands to help them get started or to support teams during key growth, whether it be consulting, product development, design or production. I have a particular keen interest in working with responsible brands who are actively aware of their footprint.
