Award-winning Creative Design Lead and Art Director, with over a decade experience, specialising in editorial-led brand development and storytelling.

I’m hands-on and strategic in conceptual creative development, art direction and execution, always putting curiosity and a human-centered approach to design and creative at the forefront of each project. My passion lies in distilling complex ideas into simple, beautiful and emotionally engaging creative solutions, working across a variety of industries and expertise, fuelling the potential in people, and collaborating and learning from others.

I’m enjoying working on projects that purposefully help shape design and culture, and am a firm believer that an emotional response is the best indicator of truly great craft.

Currently freelancing as design lead for agencies and creative studios such as AllBright, McCann, Fjord, Havas and Wednesday and committee member at SheSays London, a global network helping women advance in the creative & tech industries.
