Hello

It seems you're reading my about me page...

Maybe you have stumbled here completely and utterly randomly (which is great!) and in that case you are going to want to know a little more about who on earth I am, especially before you pay me any of your hard earned cash for a creative job.  
Or maybe you know exactly who I am, but have time to kill or you're just curious. 
So here goes...

I have a degree in Industrial Design, but like many others - my degree didn't have a huge bearing on what I do now. I side stepped slightly into the world of Graphics with a little help from my studies at Australian Academy of Design. 

After returning home and graduating from Northumbria, I luckily found myself quite quickly into the world of work, with a Graphics Job in Central London. Although Graphic Design was my primary practise, a couple of years down the line I had delved into UX/UI Design.

Being self employed allows me to now work in both areas, as well as having the freedom to persue more creative projects outside of digital work. 
As you might of noticed from my portfolio of work - I am super passionate about art and illustration! I love the chance to use my freehand drawing/painting skills to bring a project to life - whether that's through digital, branding, print or even mural work. 

I have been lucky enough to have worked with some great companies and brands in my time as a freelance Designer, such as; VansxCoppafeel, Planks, DirtQuake and Lululemon among others. 
And I hope to continue to add to these. 

So if you have a project you would like my help with - Please do drop me a message! 
Hopefully we can create something awesome together.
