A BA in Information Design has helped me become proficient in various industry-standard software, including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, and Procreate. When I’m not busy pouring my heart into my projects, you’ll find me shedding a tear (or a few) over cheesy movies and TV shows in a corner, blasting podcasts to drown out my thoughts, or battling a vitamin D deficiency. Beyond personal quirks, my work shows a dynamic fusion of creativity and strategic thinking, showcasing a sincere dedication to working on each project. Collaborating with me ensures a unique blend of passion, precision, and a fresh perspective on creative endeavours.
