About me

I have been a professional writer and graphic designer for five and counting. I have a deep, creative streak that radiates from everything I do. I have had the pleasure, in the last three years of working with any number of extraordinary, ordinary people, who have crafted projects and goals and just needed a little help with the know how. At the time of writing this description, I recently finished a job with the events director The Hemraj Goyal Foundation. My job was to craft short stories from transcripts of conversations had, with successful, Punjabi women who had immigrated to England in their youth. It was a deeply enriching experience. I have also worked with Ty Gray-el on his poetry book dedicated to the works of Benjamin Bannerker. My job here was to illustrate the book and again, nothing but glowing reviews. I have decided to join this network of creatives as, though in the last few years I have learnt a lot on my own, I am now open to learning from and sharing with my fellow creatives.

    • I went to the institution to sharpen my skills as a creative and further my connections in the creative industry. Though I did not complete the course due to its strains on my mental health, I'm proud to say I feel I achieved both of these goals.
