About me

I love design, I love solving problems through visual methods. Nothing gets me out of bed in the morning more than knowing I have a day of problem-solving ahead. All those beautiful solutions to be discovered and the process journey along the way. The research that goes into every outcome and the skills used to create it. I am a full-time graphic designer, working for a food manufacturer, yet an avid freelance designer on the side. I live for the side hustle as much as I live for beautiful aesthetics and intriguing music. Over the previous five years, I have worked for companies such as Topdeck Travel, Belazu, and Brixton Jamm. Helping increase sales, brand awareness and win awards through methods of digital and print design. Such as creating video advertising, digital banners, brochures, posters and recipes booklets. While I am not playing around on adobe creative cloud or researching design trends. I am experimenting with learning new skills such as music production or languages. Or occasional you can find me on my yoga mat reflection on my day and the world around me. If you think I am the perfect solution to your problem, feel free to drop me a message. Or better yet just say hi, I love meeting new people.
