After graduating from Plymouth Uni I taught media/arts, worked as a freelance creative, travelled for a while, and now I’m designing full-time at Curious.
I love all forms of creativity and problem-solving and I believe that our past experiences affect the way that we experience the world now and in the future. To put it simply ’you are what you eat’, which makes me very cheesy.
Like: Cosy slippers, world cinema, dope beats, fondue, video games, non-fiction books, swimming, yoga, and scotch.
I started my design career in circa 1766. Worked all over the country, eventually settling in the Midlands at some big agencies as creative head, now finally running my own place and loving every minute of it.
I’ve worked in pretty much every category, for clients that are household names (Jewson, Graham, Kenwood, Amtico, Charnos, Julian Graves, Holland & Barrett, Merrydown, Alliance & Leicester, Grant Thornton, Amtico, Fruit of the Loom, NHS, West Brom Building Society, Homebase, Coloplast, P&O, Saga…)
