Let me tell you a bit about myself.

I am a Designer with +8 years of experience, currently living in Melbourne. I've worked with brands such as Nike, Cotton On, Ford, Cricket Australia, Myer, Frank Body, Netball Vixens, TEG live, Coles and others. 
I'm comfortable working as part of a team or as a solo artist. I try to keep my files as organise as possible, so anyone can pick them up at any time.
My best skill is Photoshop. I am great with cropping, colour correcting, compositing and working with talent (skin textures are my favourite). For different projects, this is a huge advantage because I can create and test ideas quickly and once they get approved, I can spend more time and love refining them to produce a great final result. Basically, I am a mini post-production company all by my self. For most brands, this means better digital content with fast turnarounds.

I'm currently studying a Master of Digital Media @Victoria University so I can provide you with better digital, UX-UI and web skills.
Do you have a project in mind or want to collaborate with me?
