About me

Hi there, I'm a freelance designer living in London. My career started out in Publishing, where I worked for titles such as Total Film, Sky Movies and Shortlist. After 8 years designing magazines, I wanted to have a change. So for the past 7 years I have been integrated into the agency lifestyle, which has given me the opportunity to work across some fantastic brands and meet some amazing creatives along the way.
