Represented: 12/03/18


I’m a creative hybrid with strong crafting and technical skills - creative design, typography, finished artwork, retouching, prepress and print production. I’m adaptable and cool under pressure with an equal focus on big picture and minute detail.


I’m passionate about my work and thrive in a team of like-minded people. I’m down to earth in nature and pride myself on professionalism and good energy in the workplace. I have a Diploma in Digital Media and more than a decade’s experience working for creative agencies and clients alike.
