About me

I am a traditional graphic designer who has worked in the industry for 8 years. Competent in Print and Digital. Responsible, dedicated, hard working and passionate. I believe in the work, it's the most important thing. Confident in communication and presenting, able to lead a team, maintain delivery deadlines and manage costs. Detail is important, no job is too small.
