I was raised with an appreciation for independent design, craftsmanship and bespoke items which has directly influenced my career path within the creative industry. With a particular focus on apparel and lifestyle, whether it is through reading, day to day experiences, collaborations, being creative in my free time or watching films, I am constantly absorbing information and aesthetic guidance from a variety of sources which inspire me to endeavour into my own self directed projects and freelance work.

 

I enjoy learning the stories of others, their ideas and vision and am particularly drawn to those following circular, sustainable and conscious design strategies. I feel that these are the future and crucial if we wish to keep designing and enjoying successful products that capture the right attention. I relish in discussing ideas, researching, observing and discovering new and emerging communities of admirable creatives working across a variety of fields. This motivates me to act as a guide to others who are finding their path within design by helping them to solidify their vision through content creation and thoughtful marketing technique, whilst also celebrating their own unique skills and style.

 

With a strong interest in the past and future of design, I am proud to be a part of a global collective who are working hard to harmonize their methods with nature for the sake of environmental protection and self expression. 


In my free time you can find me spending time by the coast, maintaining an awareness of current trends and demands, studying vintage design, learning about holistic wellbeing and self development, watching classic films and expanding my Spotify library.
