I am a London based award winning Creative (Art Director/Designer) with 10 years of creative industry experience. I specialise in brand strategy, design strategy, and content strategy, and have experience leading campaigns and initiatives for big brands such as Google. I was able to make my mark in the world of Digital, Editorial, and Retail and my passion in all aspects of design helped me fine tune my skills in Web, Digital,Front-end Development and UX design.
My design style is clean, fresh, professional, with a sprinkle of quirky.
So where did it all start…
My love for creative began during the wonderful discovery of Geocities, a budding designers dream! My quest to be unique led me to challenge the site builder. I began researching on HTML codes on the web, in order to create snazzy over the top fan pages (of whatever boyband crush I had at that moment) with crazy flickering animated backgrounds (stars and fireworks seemed to be my fave).
Years later I went to university to study a degree in computer engineering with a multimedia pathway, which helped in familiarising myself with industry standard creative. I soon got tired of living on baked beans and instant noodles so whilst studying at uni I began freelancing and contract work.
Experience is the best teacher…well that’s what they say, right? …erm well I read it somewhere.
I’ve worked at Hawkeye (Epsilon) since Feb 2016, mainly working across the Google account. Before I made my move to Hawkeye (Epsilon) I spent 3 and a half years at Goupon, from startup to what it is today. I then spent 2 years at Algomi as a UX/UI designer working on what then became an award winning “Trading technology product of the year” at the Risk Awards.
I’ve continued to have a growing interest in all things creative and how creative can emote feeling and forces people to think.
We should all think, thinking is good!

I’m a self publish author of Children’s books. My passion for illustration, and words and my 6 year old twin daughters inspired me to write books aimed at teaching children about social dynamics and behavioural relationships.
