I've always been curious and creative. As a kid I was forever asking questions and collecting, then destroying, magazines & catalogues for projects or collages.

Not much has changed really.

I completed an inspiring degree in Graphic Design at Falmouth University where I lived by the sea for 3 years learning to consider, craft & take risks. 

With a handful of placements under my belt at some great studios, I landed a job in the publishing industry back in my beautiful hometown of Chester, where I currently work as an editorial designer.

I do freelance branding projects in my spare time and co-founded Tortoise Magazine last year with two other local creatives which keeps me pretty busy. You can check out some of the projects I have worked on here!


completely useless facts (for the curious)

  • Most of my clothes are navy or striped, bonus points for both.
  • I had three knee surgeries under my belt by the age of 24.
  • I love writing lists, to-do lists, bucket lists, shopping lists.
  • I have a cute kittycat called Kiko - but she is also pure evil.
  • I often buy things I don't need if they have great packaging.
  • I have a list of things I want to do before I turn 25, you can read it here.

Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures.
