About me

Having follwed a slightly un-conventional and circuitous route, I found a passion for visual design in 2015, whilst working for a premium fashion brand. I’ve spent the past 3 1/2 years developing those passions into a broad skillset, building on the 4 years worth of experience gained as a clothing and textile designer, whilst applying that knowledge on everything from web design to traditional printed lookbooks. I bill myself as a visual designer, have a specific interest in all things monochromatic, and spend my down-time finding balance (either on a surfboard, in bird pose, or in the perfect milk to coffee ratio of a flat white)
