About me

Without being frightened to try something new my ease of adapting to new environments is a high. Whilst being happy to work individually, my talent shines through when working in a team. Great interpersonal skills allow me to build, manage and work well with a broad range of people; management, clients and colleagues. This is where my conscientious work ethic allows me to thrive and answer briefs to their fullest. I believe my organisational skills allow me to manage my time effectively to reach deadlines, and through relentless determination, produce not only aesthetically pleasing outcome, but ones that communicate the messages they intended to properly. Outside of work I always look to keep creating; setting my own briefs, working on design competitions and providing a freelance design service. I also like to keep fit and play a range of instruments. Relaxed socialising and taking in the cultural environment is an important aspect of life in order to recharge and reinvigorate my creative process.
