About me

I am an innovative graphic designer with extensive experience in both print and web platforms. With a heavy skill set and a background in fine arts and international graphic design, I deliver bespoke design solutions that encompass a healthy balance of form and function. My success is fuelled by my fearless ambition, sharp eye for detail, optimistic demeanour, strong organisational skills and eagerness to continue learning. I am accustomed to performing in deadline-driven environments and with tight budgetary restrictions, but I also love to jump on opportunities involving long-term projects.
