I'm a freelance designer and illustrator, and Art Director of the Grapple Annual.
After graduating from Newcastle University, I worked at a branding and strategy agency in Newcastle before taking the leap into freelance practise.
I was awarded the Katie Reinikka Memorial Prize in 2014 and was part of a team who received distinction at the AGDA Student Awards in 2015. The Grapple Annual #1 won SPN’s Most Underrated Book and Express Media’s Most Innovative New Project.
My illustration and comics have been published in Voiceworks, Seizure and the Grapple Annual. I’ve spoken at the National Young Writers Festival and Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival.
I believe building close relationships is vital to design. Whether it’s creating a brand identity alongside a client, co-authoring a comic or working with an editor to design a publication, collaboration is vital. Working closely with people and collaborating is key to my process. I create work that I care about with people who I care about.
I’m currently based in Newcastle, NSW. Growing up I wanted to be an entomologist and still take a keen interest in all the insects in my life.
