Personal Statement

I’ve been drawing and illustrating since my first box of Crayola at the age of 9. But since 2006, I have been designing and developing for the web and print more actively. Throughout those years, I’ve held various positions both from freelancer to full-time media agency employee. I’ve learnt a lot about how business and design work together, and how designers work with clients. But I’ve gained the most experience with the people I’ve worked with and the ones who were not afraid to push me outside of my comfort zone.

Why Me?
  • Strong attention to detail and strong eye for design composition
  • Excellent conceptual, visualization and design skills
  • A zeal for learning, and not afraid to admit where I’m weak or wrong
  • A great sense of humour, and an even greater smile!
  • Don’t have any ego about my work. I just want to do what’s right for
    my clients
