Welcome! I'm a 19 year old designer currently located in North Devon, England with knowledge in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and FlexiSign. Despite receiving a diploma in graphic design and creative media, I’m mostly on the job/self taught.

My graphic design talents have been marketable since 2016 with experience in both in-house positions for brands and at design agencies, gaining useful insight into principles such as prompt customer service and job sheets to ensure every job is carried through efficiently in a team environment, thriving in situations that require critical problem solving in a highly efficient time scale. I've worked with marketing executives, campaign managers and CEOs to provide beginning to end service on vehicle signwriting, brand development and advertisement.

In my spare time you can find me at the local cinema, relaxing playing video games or listening to vinyl. I’ve been playing guitar for a little over 12 years, bass for 2, and a level 5 drummer after 5 months of lessons. When possible I attend live music/film festivals, galleries and museums.

I'm not afraid to have my voice heard in light hearted criticism of film and music as I'm able to structure verbal arguments, which helped me grow a Twitter following of over 4,400 (now deactivated to focus more on my career) and a Letterboxd following of 2,500+. I've had previous experience in social media management and illustration.

I am currently employed at JAG Signs as of May 2017 as a member of the artwork team, I also do freelance work in my spare time. As of October 2018 I started printing and selling my poster designs and art cards through Instagram and Depop, shipped worldwide.
