About me

I am a graphic designer with a love for all things creative. I thrive in a team based environment and love to delve into the new. I have extensive experience in creative print design but excell in digital design. My strongest feature would be my versility and understanding of a broad range of design applications from large format to on-screen productions. I have brought creative jobs from concept to fruition, dealing with clients, initially specking jobs and following through to completion.

In my personal life I play good golf very badly, I enjoy running/exercising and all things sport and love both the business and social aspects of working in a team environment.
