About me

From the North to London. After studying Graphic Design at Leeds College of Art, I moved to study Creative Advertising at Bucks New University. Finally, based in London, I have worked in various agencies and covered a wide range brands and media platforms including TV, social media, print, radio, experiential, retail POS and packaging design. Outside of the Big World of Ad, I am trying to learn French and German and spend most of my free time crocheting completely unnecessary blankets and socks.
