About me

 

I have particular interests in Editorial Design, Typography and Printmaking, with an eye for aesthetics, love for independent publishing and enthusiasm for writing. Collaboration is a key part of my work ethic, but I am also resourceful, and able to work and think independently. I am a good communicator, capable of working efficiently to tight deadlines and budgets. I enjoy hands-on, practical work, but I’m equally comfortable with digital production. I’m not afraid to roll my sleeves up and get stuck in.
