Art and Learning has always been central in my life.

Since studying a BA in Fine Art, I've developed a passion for creatively communicating ideas to a wide spectrum of audiences. I've worked in the fields of fine art, design, photography, marketing and most recently education and e-learning.

I’m happiest when I am able to use my wide range of skills to be a part of the inception, facilitation, monitoring and execution of a creative or education-based project.

My aim is to further explore and grow in the fields of design and learning.
