About me


Since 2006, I’ve crafted ideas, words and visuals in developing campaigns for global brands including Samsung, Häagen Dazs, Coca Cola and General Motors. After six years at creative agencies, freelancing has allowed me to work with niche markets, designing identities for budding new brands while gaining experience in editorial and digital publishing. Projects I've worked on have been awarded at the Cannes Lions and Spikes Asia creative festivals, exhibited at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, i-D and Financial Times, among other publications in Europe, Asia and North America.
