About me

I’m a freelance multi-disciplinary designer with experience across print, publishing, UX, digital, branding and content strategy. Working with agencies and directly with clients over the last five years has provided exposure to a wide variety of projects and levels of responsibility. I’m a motivated team-player who loves a challenging brief and works hard to find solutions which balance business priorities with user needs.
