About me

I am a graduate graphic designer; I am excited by new ideas and old stories and am always ready to learn. My practice is driven by an obsession with research and stories which often lead me to add a humanistic dimension to my designs, as well as celebrating craftsmanship and adding hand finishes. I particularly enjoy projects which require me to gather content and make sense of it; condense and curate it into a tangible designed artefact or experience whether it is on screen, in print or as an exhibition. I am highly motivated, especially when it comes to finding a link, or a hook from which to hang an idea. Whilst at university, I gained experience on both personal projects and professional collaborations which allowed me to quickly develop a sense of my own practice, ideas and process. I was an active student lending a hand where possible and contributing to studio culture amongst my peers. Having recently exhibited at D&AD New Blood, and worked with Ways and Means in Dublin to work on Offset Sheffield, I am working freelance and looking for further internship opportunities.
