About me

I am an Art Director with over 5 years experience. Previously working at TBWA Hunt\Lascaris in Johannesburg South Africa. I have worked on various brands and clients such as Nissan. Standard Bank (Largest Bank in South Africa and Africa). Tiger Brands (one of the largest FMCG companies in South Africa). The Times newspaper. Flight Center and various others. I am very familiar with Adobe programs such as Photoshop, illustrator and InDesign. I can video edit too. I am passionate about all things Film and photography. I love being involved at shoots and production. I like to be part of every process. Whether it be from scamping ideas. Right up to producing campaigns. I'm interested in every level and what value I can add. My personal interests vary. I like a lot of everything. From Fashion to Football. I tend to be interested in most things.
