I always knew that a creative path would be one that I would follow. I have studied Fine Art, Illustration and am now a Creative Designer with three years' industry experience. One led into the other. Fine Art began at school, Illustration and first class honours followed at university and Graphic Design, well Graphic Design found me! New Blood, a fantastic mad blur of 3 days, resulted in an Internship at Empire Design. In search of more diverse experience I took freelance positions in publishing and marketing. Finally, working for Rufus Olins at Newsworks for two years I honed a broad skill-set across marketing, events and branding. Next was a six month trip around New Zealand and Asia to absorb cultures, people,landscapes, foods, colours and architecture. Currently a creative designer at global Media Agency Dentsu Aegis.Locked Pro Plan feature
