I’m an experienced Digital Designer with strong web development skills and a background in visual storytelling.
As a versatile, full-stack generalist, I can hop into specialisms when a project calls for it.
Thanks to my diverse skills and knowledge of the development, design and production for digital platforms, I’m able to comfortably manage complex creative projects.
