Here's a list of things that put me where I am today:
I escaped The Fens and never looked back.
Won a Distinction in Graphic Design BTEC level at college and also bagged a City & Guilds in Photography whilst I was there.
Ran away to university and completed an FDA in Animation and Computer Visualisation from Ravensbourne before realising
that I liked graphic design and drawing a whole lot more. Whoopsie.
I then graduated with a 2:1 in Graphic Design for Print and New Media BA (Hons) from the University of Bedfordshire.
In my "professional" life I worked very hard as the only designer in a pharmaceutical publishing company for two years before going freelance.
My freelance existence has mostly been served to two main design agencies in London, Incisive Media and WTF Creative.
I am forever thankful for all the wonderful and sometimes magical work they have both given me over the years, they are all rather lovely people
and I feel honoured to have them in my life.
