I am an experienced Creative Director and design advocate. Driven by an inquisitive and experimental spirit. My work is rooted in traditional techniques and a DIY ethos, blending digital elements with analog methods to craft captivating visuals and compelling narratives.
In the past I have worked within branding strategies with Marantz, publishing with Penguin Random House and entertainment at Warner Music. My freelance work has been varied and cross-disciplinary.
I draw inspiration from culture, music, art, and printed ephemera, and these influences shape and intersect with my design approach. I like to approach each project with an open mind, and aim to bring innovation and continuous improvement to every endeavor.
Originally from the UK, I am now California based.
In addition to my design work, I am active in the music/art scene as co-founder and choir member of San Diego New Verbal Workshop. an experimental electronic/vocal musician and a member of the cult Irish band, United Bible Studies.
