About me

I think creatively and logically with a good smattering of pragmatism in there too. While perhaps less easy to classify some have seen my unusual background as a welcome addition their venture. I don't like ticking boxes anyway. Fashion design, fashion performance and experiential design interest me equally and I am avidly seeking to diversify my experience in the U.K.
