About

A happy and creative graphic designer with eleven years experience on a variety of exciting projects.

 

I excel in working with a team and following the lead, but equally enjoy working through a project on my own initiative. I have extensive experience of working on a range of different sized projects, from the concept stages through to delivery, client interaction, and dealing with third party needs. Personal development and continual learning plays a very important part in my drive as a designer. I love nothing more than a new challenge.

Out of work my craving for new challenges continues. You will often find me photographing live gigs, landscapes or other events - I never go anywhere without my camera. When the photography is not taking the lead, I’m out on the hills, on my bike, playing music with the local samba band, or travelling around the contry in my van, looking for the next adventure.
