Living in Canada for over 3 years allowed me to immerse myself in the Digital Design and Advertising culture.

What I learned overseas, I apply to my work in Australia.

I enjoy being active in the sun or snow when I get the chance.

User Experience, Branding, Marketing, and Mixed Martial Arts are my passions.

I adapt to varied clients from large corporate entities to small to medium startups.

Seeking creative thinkers involved in exciting, new and challenging opportunities.
