About me

I am an ambitious, multi-disciplinary Designer with a passion for branding, film and creative problem solving. Currently based out of East London, I previously graduated with first class honours from a BA (Hons) Graphic Design degree at Nottingham Trent University. Whilst there, I also completed an international exchange studying Graphic Design at FIT in New York. Trained in traditional graphic design, but with a keen interest in film, I have recently pursued further experience working for VFX/production company The Mill. Primarily working on pitches and creative treatments for adverts and short films, I have also been able to gain shoot experience through running and assisting directors on set. I have a hands on attitude to design and thrive on getting to try out new techniques. Currently any spare time is spent in the cinema, sign painting in my little room or trying to tackle a third dimension in cinema 4D.
