About me
Working to challenge creative briefs and engage audiences in the best way possible. With several years industry experience in producing a wide range of high quality printed and digital assets, I am constantly learning and eager to create for a sustainable future. Clients and colleagues would describe me as diligent, ambitious and highly resourceful. I’m capable of maintaining a positive, can-do attitude in solving problems with tight budgets and challenging timelines whilst also bringing passion and energy to any working environment. As an extremely climate conscious individual, I always endeavour to ensure my creative process and final outcomes are as sustainable as possible. I believe this produces highly unique and memorable outcomes which stand out against competitors.

    Along with a product designer and fabricator, I worked to build the brand RE-CASK, a project harnessing the potential of reclaimed whisky casks in moving towards a more circular economy and sustainable future.
