About me

I'm a hungry creative with a conceptual twist and minimalist approach. I've dipped into various roles across luxury fashion, creative consultancy, media-monitoring and other agency work, so you can see I'm a little well-rounded in different areas. I also like to dabble and collaborate with like-minded creatives too!
