Working in advertising has allowed me to understand the mindset of the people and predict trends, whilst my illustrative work lets me breathe life into those ideas.

I am an excellent team worker, and can also leg it on my own!

I am a: Fast learner. Hard worker. Happy person. Will spread good vibe and cheer.

Also I like to laugh a lot, at myself, universe, life and everything in between =D
