I began my career in marketing and advertising until moving into graphic design. I have worked predominately contract and freelance across both agency and brand.

I’m loving Hato studio at the moment. Their work explores multichannel design in an approach that transcends print, digital and environment and takes graphics into an experiential, collective and social space.
