Work first; after studying design at university, I took a slightly diverged route to actually working in design. I spent many years as a Personal Assistant, sometimes for demanding CEOs, occasionally for highly strung Music PR Executives and one time for a very successful award winning Author.
Although not the job of my dreams, it gave me a wealth of experience and a very thick skin. Above all it made me determined to be a Designer.
Now I finally do work I enjoy, and I do it day and night, and that's something I will always be grateful for achieving. For that reason, you will never receive a half hearted attempt at design from me, and can rest assured I'll give any project 100%.
Now life; I enjoy travelling extensively, and usually on a non-existent budget. I have also moved cities and houses far too regularly, and manage to make a home quite easily. From this experience I source much of my creative influence, adapting to new situations and clients as I do with surroundings. I feel it is important to find creative inspiration everywhere, and have found much of mine from other people and places around the world.
7 years ago I discovered yoga, and spend most of my spare time on the mat. I have since completed my 200 YTT and now teach Hatha and Yin yoga, For some reason, I seem to have naturally attracted clients in the holistic, fitness and health industries, and especially enjoy working in these areas.
Whilst I embrace the digital revolution, I still find the pen and paper an important tool for any designer, and personally appreciate the flair of a hand written letter.
