Born in 1990, legend has it my first words were ‘draw, draw, draw’ though this myth has since been debunked. As a kid I needed nothing more than my Smoby desk and a pencil case full to the brim with crayons, scissors and glue. From this point forward nothing but art and design mattered.

Cut to the Leeds College of Art & Design in 2012, graduating with a First Class degree in Graphic Design. After interning at Manchester based studios in the summer of 2012 I moved to Paris to intern at advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather. This led to a 2 year long adventure where I developed my designs skills and previously overlooked aspects of my practice including: collaborative work, client interaction, idea generation and concepting.

Currently a mid-level Designer at Ogilvy & Mather's New York office but always on the lookout for freelance opportunities. The weirder and more wonderful the better. Get in touch.
