About me

Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness.” – George R.R. Martin. For me these words ring reminiscent of my earliest disciplines as a creator. Honing skills in a climate where academic prospects were prioritised and ingenious expressions scrutinised by peers, often sighted as queer, from the back of the class to the shop’s front glass, mediums would continue to endear. With the experience gained, I wish to continue building in the pursuit of a fulfilling career. I am conscientious, approachable, and reliable which puts me in a good position to be an effective and productive team player in any setting and business.
