I am aiming to become a professional designer taking part in a wide range of projects through different disciplines and producing a strong influence on the design direction of individual concepts.

    I am excited about the prospects of taking on many different disciplines and roles within a design company to not only gain a vast range of knowledge, skills and experience, but also to gain an understanding of the entire design process.

    I would like to realise my potential in this industry and as such I am seeking any opportunities to gain experience within the creative design industry, assisted by the ability to learn quickly and display the passion required . 


The majority of my interests allow me to exert my true creativity by allowing me to create my own personal touches through personal experiences. 

  • I enjoy travelling and experiencing different cultures and also taking part in cultural events such as La tomatina, a famous tomato fight near Valencia, Spain and the Camino De Santiago in Galicia, a pilgrimage to the cathedral of Santiago to raise money for make a wish foundation charity.
  • I have also expressed a keen interest in charity fundraising throughout many events. I have taken part in a Guildford walk for shooting star chase charity, the silver stone half marathon and the London marathon 2013.
  • I am developing my intermediate knowledge and understanding of the written and spoken spanish language.
  • I am a keen football fan and enjoy being active in a football mens sunday league team, where I have been nominated as captain. As well as taking part in many different sports for leisure and social benefits.
  • I am very interested in Architecture and especially in the theoretical translation process into a sculptural design concept. Focussed on interior architecture.
  • I am excited by the use of model making within designs and the visualising of concepts.
