I am a graphic designer currently living in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. With a strong enthusiasm for design, I have the ability to bring outside inspiration into my designs to create exciting and innovative concepts that are still both functional and accessible. I always look for ways to better my craft and bring my best to designs that I am involved in creating. I am a creative problem solver who uses a balanced blend of creativity and logic to tackle any challenge.
Away from design, I love climbing and playing the piano to grade 6. I'm also a massive Marvel fan!
