About me

 

With almost three years experience in the fashion industry, I am an ambitious, hard-working creative professional with excellent skills and experience in both graphic design and photography. I am willing to go the extra mile to make something above average and I believe this defines my entire attitude towards my professional and personal life. Whether behind the camera or designing on my mac, I love creating visuals that are both innovative and commercially viable and understand the importance of maintaining a strong brand identity in all that I do.
