the elevator pitch
After a fantastic career so far of 25 years in the creative world, I have developed fantastic industry knowledge and contacts enabling me to constantly grow and challenge myself. I have a brilliant reputation within the industry and my suppliers as being creative, fast and professional. Not only harnessing exceptional design/illustration/photography skills but also having years of print press operation which gave me insight to practical design for print.
With superhero level attention to detail and passion for great brand and design, I flourish in dynamic roles that allow me to work within a great team as well as the flexibility to focus autonomously when needed.
I have a full design studio set up at home as well as laptops for mobile work when required.
Having experience in so many realms of design from SME’s right through to the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games and Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, I have been fortunate enough to gain integrated approaches to both domestic and international audiences which has helped me become a highly adaptable and open-minded designer.
