About me

I’m an award winning print & branding designer who’s bridged leadership positions within busy design houses with successful freelance work. I’ve managed brands with both international & local reach in industries ranging from fitness, medical, publishing & nightlife, among others. In addition to a vast expertise with all things printed, the unique solutions I’ve created for clients has included design of packaging, clothing & uniforms, professionally produced films, hand-painted illustrations, original photography & more. Beyond this, I come from a background in filmmaking that has included roles of Producer & Assistant Director. This, in addition to broadening my perspective of the visual storytelling strategies that are essential to designers, has made me adept with leadership & organizational skills within the kind of fast paced environments that involve working with a wide variety of creatives invested in reaching the same goals through active communication.
