About me


I am currently a freelance brand identity designer. I worked in New York for the last 4 years and recently relocated to Berlin. I was designing logos and branding for Partners & Spade in NYC. While at Partners & Spade I also helped with art direction and re-brand of LA based denim label JBrand. I also created a logo for health company columbia care for their consumer marijuana business. After completing a Honours Degree in Fashion and Textile Design from the University of Technology, Sydney, I was a graphic artist in menswear for Australian streetwear label Insight as well as the iconic New York brand Tommy Hilfiger. Outside of commercial work, I explore with type and illustration through personal projects. I started my design career in fashion design, but now brands are my passion and I love working with multi disciplinary studios to create a unique brand story and experience.
