About me

I’m a chameleon, better described as an all round designer- I am a trained architect, professional graphic designer, freelance illustrator, self taught animator and a painter on the side, I bring all of these different perspectives to my work. I’ve been working in the creative industry for 2-3 years and I’m looking for a place that will challenge my curiosity. I want to blur the edges of my craft in an environment where I will constantly be learning from others and doing work that will inspire others. A natural storyteller, I’m good at communicating ideas and drawing people into my worlds. My educational teaching and professional experience has streamlined my ability to quickly invent and communicate imaginary environments under very high pressures. I am early in my design career and am eager to tackle complex design issues. I excel in generating fresh insights, inspiring breakthrough ideas and solving problems using a combination of strategic and creative thinking, and I want to put my skills to work.
