About me

A little about me

I've been making creative media for over ten years, with experience in web, design, branding and video and enjoy blending them together to create effective and engaging projects.

Business start-up has always interested me and I have a Masters in Creative Enterprise, where I specialised in creative strategy and direction, helping companies align their brand, understand their target audience and unlock potential revenue streams. I've also started and run a number of businesses from creative agencies through to sportswear manufacturing companies.

I’m an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) and teach business start-up to university students as well as being a certified Design Sprint facilitator and I also mentor at DesignLab supporting new designers develop their craft.
