I am an enthusiastic multi-discipline graphic designer who is constantly furthering my skills and knowledge. I have a proven ability to successfully design and create artwork for print and web. I have worked with a variety of clients and tailor my design approach to specific client needs.

I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology with Neuropsychology where I explored advertising and layout, giving me a unique perspective on design. I have a strong educational background and I am used to working to strict deadlines and achieving excellent results in my work. I have retained this attitude throughout my career and strive to push myself even harder in the future.
