    18 years of experience in design, brand creation and illustration have given me sharp instincts, which allow me to turn around projects in rapid time with a high level of craft. I've worked on projects of all sizes from branding for multinational companies to the humble, local bakery. I apply the same passion and standards for each. That said, I'm not "too proud to listen". I can give my advice and experience but ultimately the person closest to the brand is you and your knowledge and input are gladly accepted. I've produced copywriting for print and TV advertising, email campaigns and promotions. My illustration follows a freehand, flowing style full of character and expression. My design is influenced strongly by Swiss Style, Cubism and Deconstructivism but I adapt each project to what will work best for the client.

    I have my BA Honors Degree in Design, and I've been in the game for almost 9 years now. I've always been the type of person that makes-a-plan, and I look at the brighter side of things. No matter what I need to accomplish or solve, I will always find a way. Looking back, it has been my strongest skill as a designer, and as a person. I'm very grateful for the creative journey I've had so far, and always I'm curious to see where it will take me next.
