I am a Leeds based designer currently studying a BA (Hons) degree in Graphic and Communication Design at the University of Leeds. The course has so far given me a chance to flourish as a designer, as well offer aspects of design I never knew I had skills in. My passion in life is illustration, having studied Fine Art at University, and I have always desired to incorporate this creative attribute into a more business driven, advertising industry. For me the fun lies where the creativity begins. The more elaborate and eccentric an idea is, the more reward there is when a whole campaign begins to form and evolve around it. I am currently combining my Fine Art inspired creative flair with my new skills I have possessed in the advertising world and loving every minuet of it.

I am also super passionate about music, and am an avid guitar and piano player. Whenever I can I create and mix songs digitally using music creating and mixing software. All songs I have composed are on my Soundcloud: http://www.soundcloud.com

Deckhand
As a member of a team of three I had a very responsible role, taking charge of 30 to 40 customers per trip (which lasted 2-3 days). Under said circumstances I had to utilise my personal abilities to interact with and entertain customers, at the same time remaining professional. Teamwork was essential and I dramatically improved my ability to work in a team proficiently and enthusiastically, leaning what makes an effective team. Having such a responsible role over a large group of people I grew a lot more confident in commanding a group and taking a leadership role, as well as connecting with strangers.
