FOR EVERY PROBLEM, THERE’S A CREATIVE SOLUTION.

View Resume

I’m both Art Director and Graphic Designer with a strong brand approach. I originate, direct and oversee effective brand work, brand identities and campaigns that run across multiple channels and platforms.

Strategically led, I’m driven, curious, collaborative and above all enthusiastic and passionate about good design – and can oversee the entire design process from concept to delivery.

Over the years, I’ve picked up the odd award (some very odd) and had the opportunity to lead several creative departments. This has involved the mentoring of creative teams and individuals, as well as the day-to-day running of an effective creative projects.

I’m an expert in the core Adobe Creative Cloud applications – Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and XD.
