About me

 

I am a graduate in Industrial Design from the University of Bournemouth. This course built really well on my interests in secondary school which were Art and Design & Technology. My placement Year 3 was spent working full time as a Designer in the Electronic Security industry. I am a graduate member of the I.E.D. and currently studying part-time at the London College of Communication for the Postgraduate Certificate in Design for Visual Communication. Conscientious and reliable, with a proven strong work ethic I am willing and eager to learn.
