About me
I am a Multidisciplinary designer working across Interior, Branding & Furniture design with a focus on materiality, aesthetics for contemporary brands. I have a BA in interior Architecture and an MA in Branding and Communication Design. I have worked at award winning multidisciplinary studio Blacksheep. Over the last 7 years, I have worked with brands such as Ritz Carlton, Marriott Hotel Group, Brasserie Blanc & Jamie’s Italian and more on projects worldwide. I also combine all with a lifelong passion for the Africa Continent and have worked with other African led organisations within the Art and Design spectrum. In my spare time I love to travel and experience new cites.
