About me
I am a determined and focused individual, fast learner and embrace new situations and environments, as well as meeting new people. I constantly feel energised by the excitement and interactional aspect of working on projects with teams of creative people. I can work both independently and as a strong team. I am a very welcoming and motivated person who has been praised on my ability to make all ages of people feel at ease in my presence. I am a very confident person whom relishes indulging into new surroundings with innovative and exciting learning prospects. I have graduated with a 2:1 in Fine Art at the University of Leeds, during this time I developed my critical, analytical and personal skills through discipline and motivation. I have developed and designed my own artist website, primarily showcasing my portfolio, selling printed and framed products of my artwork and printed clothing. I have a huge interest in fashion and how it has become more than just clothing, it is about creating a lifestyle for people to follow and I am particularly fascinated how fashion can empower, identify and dictate the image you put across. By nature, I have a strong background of aesthetics, I am a painter, illustrator, graphic designer, photographer and videographer. I have a very close relationship with technology and creativity, with a strong background photography and film-making. I often take a logical and analytical approach to solving problems and resolving issues, attempting to instead look at the issue at hand from a unique angle. My calm and resolved demeanour allows me to tackle issues with a confident and understanding approach.

     - London, United KingdomFreelance
    I began working for Travel Blaggers which led me to strengthen my graphic design skills and creative understanding of aesthetics, using the graphics based skills daily. I have been designing their logos, business merchandising and editing their content for the public in the form of video, photography and artwork published for their website and YouTube channel for over two years. I am highly versatile and can adapt to fit a client’s needs and I think it is very important to have a healthy relationship between both.
