I have an active interest in Fencing which I started when I was seven years old. I have represented Great Britain at a very high level, and competed in two Commonwealth Games.
I currently teach the Children at my local Fencing Club where it all began for me as a child. I also take part in tactical Airsoft skirmishes monthly.
I have over 25 years extensive background in the design and IT Industry, I have worked in multi-roled positions as Studio Manager, Head of Production, Senior Creative Artworker and IT Manager for a large majority of those years.
I currently freelance, but previously worked for Echo as Production Director & Senior Creative Artworker. Previous to that I worked for Creative Leap, a top 100 Design Agency as Head of Production / Senior Creative Artworker & IT Manager, I have predominantly worked on global FMCG brands, Luxury packaging, Corporate Branding, Integrated Comms and High-end Image Retouching, all generally within Healthcare, Beauty, Financial, Drinks, Tobacco and Pharmaceutical sectors. I am a conscientious, passionate individual who is technically minded & process lead. I am easy to work with and have a light and friendly personality. I have solid printing knowledge and passing on press, resourcing, scheduling studio workflows and excellent organisation skills.
I consider myself a confident, well structured person at work who enjoys rising to any challenge and adapting to different situations.
