About me

Experienced Creative Director with a robust background in graphic design and creative direction, over 8+ years of experience leading creative teams in driving the development of engaging customer journeys and enhancing customer experiences.

I create both analogue and digital design assets that captivate audiences, amplify impact, and leave lasting impressions.

My expertise spans multiple industries and lines of business, producing graphic and print design, videography, website, and presentation design. Leading design streams, pilot projects, and learning and development programs for designers.
