About me

I AM a creative juggernaut who understands and loves PEOPLE. I kick started my career when I started working for the BBC as a designer. From there I have worked on projects from Art Directing the first e-commerce proposition for Harrods to a mobile first solution for UKTV & their portfolio of brands. More recently I have worked with Google and Royal Bank of Canada. I am a "crafter" & a "grafter" who never shies away from getting her hands dirty. Literally!
