PROFILE

MY STORY



ALWAYS TRY AND BE AWESOME

Throughout my career, I have always tried to ensure that the passion and enthusiasm for my work has shone through. I have found that it is through a team that I have achieved my greatest potential. I have learnt that having a platform to question and further ideas harnesses greater creativity - although realising creative inspiration doesn’t come without its obstacles! Obstacles such as time management and working to tight deadlines are important in any industry, but the foundations and biggest challenges of design lie in communication.

I am a well rounded Creative, itiching to feed any form of creativeness when given the chance, pushing the boundaries whenever possible. Passionate and well executed thoughts are very rewarding and any person in the industry knows
