Graphic Designer and Artist

I live and breathe design, and am passionate about doing what I love every day – designing, writing, thinking and creating.

I'm from the UK and lived, trained and worked in London, until I visited New Zealand in 2015 and was blown away by the stunning landscapes and coastline. In 2016, I moved to New Zealand and now live and work in Auckland.

I enjoy working with brands from concept to production, especially in the boutique food and drink and technology sectors. I enjoy working on branding, packaging, editorial, retail, environmental / signage, and B2B communications. I've also worked in the public sector on public arts projects, workshops and exhibitions.

I received a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design at the University of the Arts London, tutored by Derek Yates in 2013. After the end of year exhibition, my artwork was sold to the late Chris Wainwright, Dean of the University. My areas of study were sustainability and participatory design. I understand the current challenges we face and am commited to making a positive impact on people and the environment. I've been honoured to assist with the exhibitions of the Icograda Archives at the London College of Communication, Typetasting at the V&A and Signpainters screening by Ghost Signs.

I grew up on the outskirts of London, UK and was lucky enough to experience a vibrant music and art scene. Music has been a big inspiration to me. I'm an ocean and nature lover, and love to get out to the coast to soak up some inspiration. When I'm not designing, I'm usually cooking, writing, taking photos or surfing!
