About Me

I am a creative practitioner and freelance graphic designer based in Auckland, New Zealand.

In 2015 I completed a fine arts degree, majoring in graphic design, at Whitecliffe College of Art & Design.  I started as a ‘mature student’ in the foundation course and it was five fun and challenging years, but upon graduating I was ready again for the ‘real world’. I was part-time In-house Graphic Designer at IPFX Ltd for almost 2 years and am now solely freelancing.
