About me

Over the last six years I have re-branded an international company, developed and art directed a new video series, illustrated for global lifestyle and fashion brands and helped a couple of startups get off the ground. As a Designer and Art Director, my skills are multi-disciplinary. I have worked across consumer, startups, music and editorial brands. I love a challenge, working with passionate teams and always aim to push myself and try new ideas. I am currently Senior Creative at Audio Network.
