About me

I am providing art-direction on small- and large-scale projects from creative conception to completion.

Whether the objective is commercial or educational, whether artistically or technically focused — I have the know-how to deliver a bespoke solution, always driven by the desire to create digital experiences that suit contemporary needs.

I look forward to challenging and innovative projects, which allow me to sharpen my experience in interdisciplinary design, create conceptual solutions to graphic communication and be responsible for the successful attendance of huge accounts.

I am continuously learning and utilising the latest applications and technologies for communicating ideas — always staying ahead of the constantly evolving digital landscape by meeting changing consumer expectations.

I am maintaining a full range of strategic, creative and technical expertise in the field of digital communication.
